Windows 7: 100 something iexplore.exe processes

100 something iexplore.exe processes


I have a problem here. I don't know why, but since this afternoon, as soon as I log on into Windows account, there are some 100 processes of iexplore.exe that automatically start running. I looked up every forum that is there on the web and found out it's a malware that causes this, but every time there's another solution posted to the same problem.

What should i do? It's not that it slows down my computer, but it's that I'm worried .
