IE auto start & Volume goes off by itself

Post by Zaga on Fri 23 Jul 2010, 11:20 am

I've been having this problems on two things for weeks now and it's getting really annoying so I've decided to ask for some help here.

First is about the Internet Explorer. Once I start my laptop, Internet Explorer goes on by itself. I've been seeing multiple iexplorer.exe on my task manager even tho I never open it. Whenever I try to kill it using task manager or processxp or even hidetoolz, it just goes back again on the process list. I've remove IE 8 but when I restarted my laptop the old IE is there. I tried deleting the IE folder on drive C Program files but it keeps saying "Access Denied". I know it's running because it randomly shows advertisements and pop-ups most of the time. I tried opening IE myself but when I double clicked it or right click then hit Open, nothing is happening. The browser doesn't show up.

Second is about the volume controls. Sometimes the "Wave" level goes 0 by itself. It's as if someone is using my laptop other than myself. I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling my audio driver which is Real Tek but didn't solve anything.

I hope you could help me solve these problems. Thanks.

I've run MBRCheck.
