    hi. I've this problem where the iexplore.exe runs at start up in hidden mode.

    saw it among the processes and try to end task but after a few seconds a ntdll application appears and iexplore.exe runs again

    i ran anti virus and anti malware. all cleared so i doubt it is a virus infection

    the iexplore.exe had a microsoft corporation as its info

    can anyone tell me how do i off this iexplore.exe as i'm need to do stress test on my computer

    Yes, this is atypical situation, probably because Internet Explorer is so tightly integrated into the operating system.

    Just bring up Task manager selecti iexplore.exe and choose End process.

    You have a virus infected file.

    Just go to Goggle and type in ntdll.exe virus

    Please run a anti-virus program immediately

    Go to Start > Run, and type msconfig and look for any change programs.

    You can actually remove all programs except your anti-virus, Spyware detector and personal firewall if you have one.

    You could possibly uninstall by going to Start, > Run, and type optionalfeatures.

    Uncheck the Internet Explorer entry, reboot your computer ands go back and re-install it.

    I'd wait for a few more replies before attempting this.
