iexplorer.exe is the executable for Internet Explorer. If you remove it you can no longer use IE to browse the internet.

I recommend that you download Spybot and check for trojans / malware. Also make sure your virus scan and Windows has all the up-to-date patches by going to Windows Update.

Finally, DUMP internet explorer and install Firefox from Mozilla.org. Its a much better browser.
