IEXPLORE.EXE running at 80+mb. won't quit

  second best 15:56 01 Dec 2006

Hi. I know this is internet explorer, but it's running at around 80-100mb, and it won't quit. i have two istances in the task manager, but neither of them will end. I believe i have a virus, or a few. i've run avg 7, and it mentioned a 'Zlob' file but it wont heal or delete. also, spybot, ad-aware, hijack this and cws.
can you help me. thanks.

Boot into safe mode (press F8 at startup and from the menu choose safe mode).

From there can you run AVG again?

however, there was no iexplore activity while in safe mode. what does this mean?

Internet Explorer (or whatever it is) cannot run in Safe Mode.

i had installed netpumper, i'm a fool. how do i get rid of it.

nope, that's not it. got rid of netpumper, i think, using spyware doctor, but i still have iexplore running twice, using over 90 mb combined. and it won't end task.

64thunkonce.exe can't find any reference using google to this. any ideas. i'll be honest and say i've recently dloaded emule to see what it's all about, but i'm having trouble. not worth the hassle.
