Internet Explorer Problems

  SDJ 14:49 12 Nov 2004

A machine in the office has a problem with IE, every now and again a popup will open, a small browser box generally in the top left corner, it comes up page cannot be displayed and then if it is closed the IE page that is being used shuts down.

This machine has XP with SP2 and popup blocker enabled.

I have run and removed spyware and adware.

Any suggestions? I have tried to repair the IE installation but cant find it in the ADD/Remove programs list.

Any reason for this?

It appeared to be working fine but then started the problem again!

Probably no link what so ever!
