MessageI have this happen with a dll attached to iexplore.exe.
The dll was placing pornography in a new IE window everytime any action was done in IE, even opening the Internet 
options opened a new IE window with Porn.

I had to boot up Windows Recovery command window to delete the dll from system32 and dllcache.

BTW dllcache is where windows stores it's back up copies of files.

    Real simple.  I have randomly named processes (like gk5odre.exe) popping up, and when I kill them, another one 
takes their place.  *Something* has to be the parent than controls this.  I can delete an entire registry key and watch 
it be recreated in less than a second.  I can delete a directory with three dlls in it and watch it be recreated right 
before my eyes.  I can kill the randomly named process and watch it reappear using the same name or a completely 
different name.  I can delete the executable after killing the process, and it will be recreated in no time.  So 
*something* has to be controlling it, yet when I look at the process tree, the randomly named process appears to be the
