    Switched my machine an this morning and heard 4 or 5 mouseclicks

    over the speakers - music then started to play in background without showing the IE browser.

    It seems somehow that IEXPLORER.exe is launching itself ?????


    Tried a few spywares, sophos and Zonealarm running.


    Any ideas most appreciated

    I'm getting the same thing. Just posted about TK58.exe. Might be related.

    Was it decent music?
    Kidding! Try disabling 3rd party browser plugins in Tools>Internet Options>Advanced.

    hi guys - managed to get rid of the music - not sure how tho - trouble is


    IEXPLORE.exe still somehow starts itself

    (after hearing a few mouse clicks thro my speakers) but without launching the browser-

    it just runs in the background - really stuck with this - anybody any ideas?
