Question: I never use IE (I am a firefox kind of guy) but for some reason it is constantly using >100MB of memory. I try to end the process through windows task manager (and other apps I have), but once I end it, it starts right up again and is using 100MB of memory within seconds. I have also used the add/remove windows components utility to get rid of IE but for some reason IE is still running. As a last resort I tried to delete the folder associated with the program sucking up my memory (C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer), but naturally Windows won't let me do this. Should I just forget about it? Is this some kind of spyware posing as IE (file name iexplore.exe)? How can I get my memory back (computer amnesia...)? Thanks
