Audio Advertising Virus - playing audio advertising through IExploer

Hey guys, just recently my computer has been playing audio advertising through IExploer. There's no window showing , but its running in the background. I have to go to my Task Manager>Processes> to end IExplorer.exe. Every 10-20 minutes it would play an audio advertisement. its getting really annoying. I tried finding it with HJT, but cant seem to figure out where the source is from.

thank you.

This sounds interesting! It must be a spyware; as a first step try out Spybot S & D.

Very interesting... Try out Strider's suggestion...

Also, when you scan the system disconnect it from the internet.
if its still unable to detect the virus or spyware, try scanning in safe mode if it lets you do it...

Keep us posted for any development...
