Internet Explorer starts on its own!

Within the last couple of days Internet Explorer has begun to start up on it's own although I normally use Firefox. Each time it carries a different ad, this morning was for Dell and then Intercasino.co.uk.

Where do I look for the culprit that is doing this?

Download update and run this to see what it finds.

Malwarebytes should sort it out for you if not it looks a bit like the Cid virus and this is common if you use messenger plus.
So it would be just a matter of removing Messenger Plus.
If you are not sure if you have that running or not check in add-remove.

Thanks Buteman, ran malwarebites & it found 3 trojans that Adaware & Kasperski had missed. Only time will tell if one of these was the culprit. Will check on Monday.
