I am running XP pro sp3 on Dell M65 all updates. I am using ZoneAlarm, Prevx3. Lately IE8 has been hanging up, slowing down my system. Using AnVir task mgr I can see the processes even after IE appears to shut down there are 2 or 3 processes running. By highlighting in AnVir and 'killing processes' all goes back to normal. Yesterday I had to shut down the computer by cutting the power, something I rarely do. After re starting, IE8 was not showing as running in the program list, but in AnVir there were 5 IE (not explorer) running. I highlighted and killed them, all was normal then. Is there some malwear or virus with this type of action? I have run ZoneAlarm and Prevx scans to no avail?
