iexplore virus

Hi MBAM support:


In a rush to download a non-Chrome browser I picked up "fast browser" and a bogus "iexplore".  MBAM and Ccleaner took care of the "fast browser" but "iexplore" remains on the computer -- I can not change any permissions and it will not let me delete it.  Also, it does not show up in the list of programs under Change/Uninstall in Windows or in the list of programs that Ccleaner displays.


I am running Windows 10 and MBAM premium. AV is Windows Defender. Both Defender and MBAM fail to detect this "iexplore".


Thanks for your help in advance,
