Dear Sir:
Sometimes I click an Internet link to go where it sends, but the link does not
reply. Then I verify with "ctrl+alt+del" what it happens and if I find in the list that appears "lexplore" I delete it and so the link works well.
I want you, if possible,to tell me what must I do to avoid that "lexplore to appear"
I ask you too, what kind of crudware is "lexplore" file?
Waiting your reply, I thaks in advance

Greetings, SYMOTOM !

Do you mean iexplore.exe?  Iexplore.exe is the executable file for Internet Explorer.

You may need to register some dll files

OR
Run this script

Best wishes!

Dear war1
I say lexplore (LEXPLORE), I don´t  know what is it . I only know that my
lexplore is not the Iexplore.exe because as you say it is the executable file for Internet Explorer and mine does not allow the correct development of Internet
Explorer 6 and it appears two or three times in the list of the active programs (ctrl+alt+del).
Waiting your reply I thank you in advance.

3. If still no joy, download HijackThis
