So I'm having a problem with my computer running slow and it seems to stem from multiple iexplore.exe instances running even though I use firefox and never use IE. It is really jamming up my system, I've read several different accounts from people and it seems to be linked to some file getting corrupted and then communicating through ie. I have run Avast and AVG virus scans and nothing shows. I have a HJT log which I will post. Thanks a bundle.
