|I have a serious problem with my Compaq Presario laptop. A process keeps opening up called iexplore.exe. I monitored this process in the task manager, and I noticed it continually uses more and more ram and virtual memory until I run out of memory, and the 'system's virtual memory too low' message box appears.|
I try to end the process, and also tried ending the process tree, but it pops right back up 5 seconds later. I also noticed two other processes are appearing with the iexplore.exe: one is NnWL3t2n.exe (sometimes two of these), and the other is regsvr32.exe. I have already run malwarebytes and spybot search and destroy on full scans twice each and deleted what it found, but this darn iexplore.exe isn't going away, and it's wrecking my computer; I can only play games or surf the web for 5 minutes before my virtual memory runs out. I don't want to sit there and continually exit out the processes just to use my computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
p.s.= I thought about reformatting my whole laptop, but I don't have the CD to do so! Is there a way to do system reformatting without a CD? (or without having to make one?)
p.s.s= I don't know if it's anything important, but I keep hearing a voice on the computer say 'congratulations, you've won'. This happens frequently ,and even when I have no browser open!
