Hi all

in my task manager i have a task called "VBSTUB.EXE" running at startup
which is loading iexplorer.exe, but only in the background and causing my pc to do strange things.

anyone seen this VBSTUB.EXE process running before?
i need to kill it???

i have run:

CWShredder
Ad-Aware SE Personal
XoftSpy
Spyware Doctor
and a few different anti-virus programs.

nothing helped!!!

I don't know about your specific question, however, I have had good luck with Trend Micro online scans for clean up.

Trend Micro - Housecall

Run the Spyware scanner first, then run both the options from Scan My PC.

Others I have used with success are:

Ewido

Spybot Version 1.3

I do not use Spybot Version 1.4 as there is a video display bug in it.

Found a fix!

Boot into safe mode and delete the following files from your Windows directory. (That's "folder" for you young'uns)

vbstub.exe
system.exe
system16.exe

Reboot.

Worked for me.
