Ok looking a bit further iexplore.exe is safe and is ms internet explorer but Iexplore.exe is associated with a number of viruses.

It therefore is probably a good idea to run a full system scan with av and antispyware products getting someone to check through a hijack this log for you may well be a good idea as well
