I recently had an infection by a series of trojans and spyware, all at once. Never had anything like that before. After running AVG, AdAware, SpySweeper, a2Guard, ewido, and running ZoneAlarm, I finally got rid of most of it.

Except for IEXPLORE.exe running. I don't use IE, I never do, and this process runs after every restart, and it won't let me kill it in the task manager (just keeps coming back). So I know it is a virus of some type, and I've done dozens of searches and haven't found a solution yet. This virus also killed Windows Firewall (which I fixed, but found it listed a "Warez File Server" as an exception).

Thanks in advance for your help!!!
