I keep getting a whole bunch of pop-up ads. I downloaded the Google Tool Bar to stop them, but there is one that still keeps getting through - when I hit Ctr-Alt-Delete, and then go to processes, it is called IEXPLORE.EXE. It keeps coming back. I went to My Computer and tried to delete it off the C drive but it says it belongs to Microsoft Corp and won't let me delete it. I just recently upgraded my Messenger because it insisted, and I wonder if it was from there or where........

If I keep x'ing it out, it either brings down my home page or I have to keep deleting it.

If you said you try all of those things you said you tried, then I can personally recommend you to use bull guard, its great for that job, and I can talk because I personally happen to have it.
