Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
There are a couple of things to look into if Internet Explorer (IEXPLORE.EXE) starts up and tries to download things on startup.

Either of two ways. Check for spyware, or examine what's in your start-up. This article: What's all this stuff running after I boot Windows? should help.
