Problem Summary: Suspected fake internet explorer

My cpu usage was running at 100% capacity. I went it to task manager to see which programs were attributing to this and it happened to be IEXPLORE.EX, using all the usage, whils there was another one using nothing...it happens even when off line. I can end the process, but not actually find the file to delete, even through services. And when the comp is restarted it reappeares running at max....im certain that it is not real, and cannot find the file location to properly remove it. Thank you any help would be great

Problem Summary: fake explorer suspected

my computer is running at 100% cpu capacity, in the task manager it is showing an explorer running at 99%, I can end the task, but cannot delete it through services, nor can it be uninstalled as it has no file location. the real one is as to be expected, using basically no cpu, but I suspect the other is fake. It will reappear every time the computer is started, and runs even when offline!. this is what the file looks like IEXPLORE.EXE.
I cannot put in the space below, as its file location doesn't exist. thank you
