Hello, I've actually had quite a bit of problems lately, so Ive browsed these sites, and I'm horrendous at computer abilities. I've downloaded Hijack this, whatever that is, and saved a log file, and thus I will paste it below.

Basically iexplore.exe keeps opening in my task manager and using tons of memory though I NEVER use iexplorer, I use mozilla. This happens even just when sitting around. Also, Mr T's voice keeps coming over my speakers loudly, and yet when I choose to manually end task on the iexplore.exe, the voice stops.

I'm useless at this, so I'm hoping for some help! Thanks in advance! Below is the Hijack thing:

Well crap it just said "Dont post hijack thing unless demanded by an expert," so I'll save it :)

go into safemode - when computer gets to desktop search for
IEXPLORE.exe if you find any other IEXPLORE.EXE that aren't
in the Program Files's Internet Explorer Folder... delete them. -
also if you don't use IEXPLORE at all go into c:/program files/
and locate the internet explorer folder, all you have to do is
rename the Folder to "Internet Explorer Disabled" and select yes
on the prompt - this will stop websites from using internet

Wow, this may seem sad to some people, but for the most part, that simple answer worked!

I haven't the faintest idea how, but thank you! I just deleted EVERYTHING I found with explore in it, and now, although its running MUCH slower on Mozilla, there is no redirection, and iexplore doesn't appear in the task manager!


CRAP Edit below...

Nevermind. It was hidden. The iexplore thing is gone now, but on google, it continues to redirect me but ONLY when I click the html links in the search. If I manually select and copy/paste them into the bar above, it goes where I want it.

I know this is hijacking redirection software or whatever, I just don't know how to get rid of it...
