    Multiple iexplore.exe boot at the same time - possible malware

    darkness84065

      I have a problem when starting Internet Explorer.

       

      When I start IE, two (2x) copies of iexplore.exe boot up.  One small sized (5-10K ish), one large (100K ish).  Only one window is open and if the process is ended, both items close and are removed from the Task Manager.  If a second tab is opened, now there will be three (3x) copies of iexplore.exe running.  I have had issues with some viruses lately and suspect this may be the culprit.  McAfee does not find a problem, nor do other programs which specialize in this area.

       

      1) How can I tell if this is malicious?

       

      2) How can I remove the problem?

       

      Thanks
