Hi ! Can anyone think why this happens:- When I click on Internet Explorer it opens up the window at click here as it should, however after it opens google up it also opens another window up for click here . This is just so annoying, but does anyone why it is happening and how do I stop it from opening in the first place. This has only started happening in the last week.

Cheers !

You have"ad-ware" installed onto your system... Download and install "Ad-Aware" (free utility) from click here

Run this program with a "full scan" which will take aprox 20 mins and delete ALL the files it finds!!! (the files will be "backed up" just in case you need them!!!)

Thanks Guy's ! I downloaded Adaware, ran it and I couldn't believe how much rubbish it found. Everything is working as it should now. Thanks once again !
Regards.

You'd better download Search and Destroy 1.3 click here and SpywareBlaster click here (works in background) as well then...:-)

Update regularly and don't forget a firewall such as ZoneAlarm (free) from click here

Even better is to switch to Firefox 1.0 (browser) and Thunderbird 1.0 (e-mails) from:

click here

You can import all your IE and OE settings during installation and then configure Firefox and Thunderbird as the defaults.
