If you are using a version of IE which has a "tabbed" interface, it's quite normal to have more than one instance of iexplore.exe running.

There's an iexplore.exe running for the main browser executable, and then there's an iexplore.exe for each tabbed page which is either in focus or in the background.

When you close a tab, one of the iexplore.exe processes should also close within a few seconds.

Looks like you are running windows xp. I would download malwarebytes(in safe mode with networking) and then install and run in safe mode.(if you can.)
