Just been configuring a new Lappy (online) hope to purchase and receive before I ceremoniously set fire to this one. Even after the reformat a month back it's sooooooo slow it's unbelievable. Just noticed though, when Ctrl/Alt/Delete, quite a lot of memory is being used by iexplorer.exe - NOT to confuse it with explore.exe which I believe is Kosher. This iexplorer hasn't been flagged by either AVG or SuperAntiSpyware, and I've noticed there are a LOT of files found (spyware) whenever I scan.
Can you pls advice whether I'm thinking alon the right lines re. this iexplorer.exe? If I am, how on earth do I get rid of the thing?
I've done scans with AVG and SuperAntiSpyware in safe mode. I've deleted Firefox because however many times I TRY and go set Explorer as default browser, I get Firefox pop up when I want a new site/page etc etc.
I can't get Explorer (6)to load new page when I try, all I get is: Application not found with a red X to the left and OK. No other choices. This points to me like a Virus infection.
I've tried d/loading both Firefox and Explorer with the same result - Application not found.
