Hello Strangers, I know...I know...been gone for awhile, personal & technical difficulties. Mostly straightened out though. Need a little input now though. I think I've picked up a roaming piece of adware called IEXPLORER.EXE (among other names) & wondered if anyone else has run into this. I've used spy-bot & ASquared to try removal but from what I've learned it's a type that detects removal & morphs to another location. Any ideas on how to remove? I just got back up & running & am trying not to have to re-do everything again. Thanks!! Oh, I'm trying an experiment with a modified hostfile, don't know yet if it's helping.
