    Hi

    I 've noticed yesterday that I can't open internet explorer, so when I checked the task manager I found that there is already started iexplore.exe process and when I ended that process then my internet explorer opened normally.

    I know that there are a lot of worms which use iexplore.exe but the problem is NAV 2005 couldn't detect it even AD-ware proffessional didn't find it. so may be it is a new one.

    When I did a search for iexplore.exe I foud it in a different location on each windows startup so here are some of the location it appeared in:
    C:\windows\system32
    c:\windows\peernet
    c:\windows\help
    c:\windows\provisioning

    when I delete the file and restart it appears in a different location.

    Does any body know how to remove this worm?

    My OS is: Win Xp Pro SP2 with Norton anti virus 2005.

    Thanks in advance
    Alexan
