    A web page of some sort of webcam pops up on my screen ever so often, it asks me to Download something,(in German) I went to my task manager and it says IEXPLORE.EXE, When i end the process the web page and everything with it goes away. But the thing is, if i log off or restart my machine and go into task manager the IEXPLORE.EXE is there even when no pages are open. Can anyone help me get ride of this problem. THanks

    IEXPLORE.EXE is Internet Explorer that's why your browser shuts down when you end it. Don't know about the popup.

    Sounds like a script is being run. Delete all your internet files. In IE under Tools> Internet Options... you can delete all your temporary internet files. Do a system virus scan too.

    Hey is it off of the Greatpage.com site. Because about a month ago the same thing happened to me. i timed it and every half hour this page would pop up in German and freeze my mouse temperary. I forget how i fixed it but it is client side. :)

    I'm not exactly sure were the hell i got it from but its mad annoying....its a page of some girl in a skirt and its for web cams. and it asks me to download something (in German) and if i close the window more open up. if i ctrl+alt+del and end the IEXPLORE.EXE process it goes away.....but it always comes back when i restart and if I end it under one user and log on as another user it opens itself again...if you remember what u did to fix it please let me know....if anyone else has an idea feel free to make annny suggestions...Thanks
