IE7 keeps opening

  wids001 11:57 06 Nov 2009

I use the AOL browser v9 to access the internet. However just recently after visiting different sites IE7 has then opened automatically at the page of a site I visited in AOL a short time before. If I try to close IE7 another screen opens with IE7 at the very same page. This happens over and over until 7 or 8 screens of IE7 are open then everything just stops and "Not Responding" appears. My only option then is a forced shutdown of my computer and a reboot. This doesn't happen everytime I access the internet but it is getting more frequent. My specs are Dell Dimension 2400. 40gb drive (18gb free) 785mb ram.

Anyone, any ideas. Thanx in advance

you will need to download update and run malwarebytes and maybe superantispyware fromclick here

Thanks Smackheadz. I already had Superantispyware, Lavasoft Adaware & Norton IS2010 and they had found nothing. So I downloaded Malawarebytes and although it threw an error 732 when I tried to update I ran it nonetheless. It found a trojan.agent and 2 registry entries within Microsoft Security Center disabling firewall & Antivirus.

The system is runing faster already.

Thanks again
