Hi all just got a new laptop done the usual updated windows ect but everytime i open IE8 it opens 2 windows and the content loads but i can't do anything with it just beeps at me and then i have to run the task manager to close the windows.
Got firefox off of my external harddrive and that is working fine and it is my prefered browser but would like to sort this out if anyone can help.

TIA

is it spyware? have run a decent spyware program like SAS or MBAM?

or corrupted have you tried the reset option?

don't think its spyware its brand new out of the box today, but i have done a scan comes up fine,
what do you mean reset? not a full reinstall surely

IN IE8 goto tools - internet options - adv tab - you will see reset button click on that.

if new today take it back.

[everytime i open IE8 it opens 2 windows]

If the icon is in the quick start on the taskbar you only need to click it once. Click it twice and it will open 2 windows.
