IE5 Errors in opening window

  siouxah1 15:06 09 Feb 2003

Hello, can anyone help.

IE5.00.3315.1000 SP2 on W2K

Problem:- intermittent. only experienced on PCA web site so far.

When opening another posted thread in another window, the window opens and the download starts. Before completion it opens other windows in quick succession. About 50 in all. Sometimes if I wait I can close them all and return to normal. At other times have to reboot. Task manager does not help.

The windows are associated with doubleclick and and are from the HPackard web site.

Am running Adaware and Spyblaster with Norton personal firewall and Norton antivirus. Have disabled both Nortons and Adaware and Spyblaster but no help.

Any clues most welcome.

Regards Brian

Just once more to the top then will tick even if not resolved.

Have you tried to do a repair on IE5, settings, control panel, add/remove programs. Find microsoft internet explorer 5 and click on Add/Remove and you should get the option to repair.

I usually try this when I have IE problems.

Thank you Star5,

Your post prompted me to upgrade to V5.5 and up to now this seems to have done the trick.
