websites opening on their own

I am getting a web site over the top of others - possible virus. The site is a video (TV /Movies etc) site that brings itself up after ie has been open for a while - 15 or so minutes - and does not shut down by closing ie as it does not show up in the programs. I have only found it when asked to restore previous session. It generates over 10 instances of iexplore.exe in task manager (processes), but not in Applications. The only way to stop it is to restart / shut down the computer, or take out each process although some generate themselves if left.
