    Default IE keeps replicating and using up memory - unable to kill virus

    My laptop appears to have virus that keeps replicating IExplorer even when not running.It uses up memory to the point the computer freezes and shuts down. I can keep this from happening only by ending the process using task manager.

    I have run several scan program, including Spy-Bot. I got rid of a lot tracking cookies and some junk files, but none of the programs have eliminated this problem. I had AVG installed when the virus apparently came aboard. I removed it as part of the process of trying to resolve this.

    I need help getting rid of this.

    Thanks in advance or guidance on what to do next

    Hello E140714,

    So that everyone is on the same track please see the FAQ which includes guidelines for this forum and instructions in post #2 on how to provide the preliminary DDS and aswMBR logs used for analysis.

    Then start a new topic providing the logs as shown in that sticky and a volunteer analyst will assist.

    Best regards.
