Iexplorer Virus Removal


I have been a few days, perhaps even more a problem with my Windows XP. And it is some time since I noticed that, though I surf with Firefox, popups sometimes in the background on the Internet Explorer to be opened. Yesterday, I then found the "iexplorer.exe" constantly active as a process and also as an application exists. In the Applications tab, it is not possible to change this program. If I then try to stop the process starts it is all alone again. Oh yes, shortly after the boot of Windows the process is not yet active, only when I create a folder on employment situation or Windows Explorer and go. I have always clicked away. From this date, the process is active, it does not stop. And I think now that it stop with the pop-ups together. Normally this is not the iexplorer.exe process is always active. Did this with other Windows XP PCs compared.

But there is something fishy! Did someone perhaps the same problem that has ever heard of order can help me somehow?

Re: Iexplorer Virus Removal

Lock the System Restore (Windows Me / XP).
Update the virus definitions.
Delete the value in the registry.

Click on the taskbar, click Start | Run. Enter "Regedit" and press Enter. It opens the Registry Editor.

Look under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE entries:

Internet Explorer=IExplorer.exe
Delete the entries, if they exist.
Close the Registry Editor.
