Manual removal instructions:

Antivirus Report of iexplorer.exe:
iexplorer.exe Malware
iexplorer.exeHigh Risk
RapidBlaster is a task run on Windows startup.
When an internet connection is present it periodically connects to its servers to fetch advertising.
Typically pop-ups for porn sites.
Can download and execute arbitrary unsigned code pointed to by its controlling servers.

RapidBlaster/Rnd is an update which uses pseudo-random filenames.
If it fails to contact its server it will just use 'RapidBlaster\rb32.exe' as with older variants.
If you remove it, it will reinstall itself using a new name.

Installed with ActiveX drive-by download on affiliate pages, including misleading download links (eg. 'megamovieblaster') and pop-ups.
Also can installed by the ISTBar parasite.

Manual removal
Open the Task Manager and end the RapidBlaster process (rb32.exe, or, in the Rnd variant)

Find the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
and delete the 'Something lptt01' entry.
'Something' will be the same as the filename of the RapidBlaster program - you can now delete the folder containing this.

Or remove it from startup by RegRun Startup Optimizer.

Remove iexplorer.exe now!

I created UnHackMe in 2006 to fix the problem that antivioruses did not fix: detecting rootkits.

Since that time I work every day to fix the issues that antiviruses cannot.
