iexplore.exe stays running even when IE has been closed
Posted 03 December 2007 - 08:00 PM
Only been running for 2 days, but had some strange things happen
1) iexplore.exe will keep running even after closing all internet explorer windows. sometimes it is running more than once. trying to end these processes with task manager or process explorer does nothing. if I reboot they have gone away once windows has started up, but upon using IE again, they come back
2) spybot found some strange registry entires for several spywares, but I never had any of the symptoms that spybot tells me that the spywares cause, it's as if the spywares are not there, but these strange registry entries are.
for example, my spybot log has things like this:
TNS-Search: [SBI $72866050] User settings (Registry change, nothing done)
Bestsearch.Scvhost: [SBI $16B05BC6] Settings (Registry change, nothing done)
Spybot told me that these spywares show ads, run programs, disable certain things but so far I have not seen anything like this happen. all the registry detections seem to be in ZoneMap (?)
3) When going to my homepage (google.co.nz) I do not get the google icon in the address bar, or the current tab. I get a white L above a red line on a black background instead.
All very strange, can anyone here help me please?

It usually says "GOOGLE" or sometimes "EBAY" in the app. list for me.
The funny thing is I was only using firefox at the time.
Now my computer is messed to the point where firefox won't run proper.
