There is an Iexplore.exe virus...

Iexplore.exe is an executable from microsoft and is a legitimate process for internet explorer. If this is shown as active when internet explorer is not in use then it is probably the virus.

Run your anti-virus program from safe mode to rid yourself of this problem!

Change Is Good

I have NEVER went back to using Internet Explorer since using Mozilla Firefox. If you are open to using this browser, it will save you LOADS of headache. :)
