I have a program that keeps loading identified in Program Manager as Lexplore, L not I, web search only referance is to Symantec who suggest that it is the W32.HLLW.Sodabot trojan and give removal instructions. The referances in the removal are not present and the anti virus and spy removal programs dont find it either, a squared, ad-aware,spybot,spyware blaster, AVG free, spy subtract and CW shredder. It is driving me mad and slowing up my computer can any one rid me of this pest ?

Use the "msconfig" command to "disable" it from "startup"...

Start->run->type msconfig and press enter!!!

If only it was so simple. Lexplore does not appear in the list of programs in msconfig start up.

finally solved by my Daughter, Lexplore is part of MSN plus! For any other suffers is is removed by reinstalling MSN plus, uninstalling, reinstall and finally uninstall again.
