Hey ! While im searching the web, quite frequently new windows just randomly open up, with deals on random products and stuff, and as they load, they are slowing my computer down, i looked into and and couldn't find where to prevent this from happening, and i'm wondering if anyone else had this problem and fixed it and such?

Thanks !

When I ran with XP this used to happen to me occasionally. Using IE6 I'd go to a certain site then once I had closed the page, more would start opening with my original page to a point where everything came to a standstill! Following advice from this forum I downloaded various anti-malware programs, Superantispyware, Malaware bytes, A-Squared plus also C-Cleaner, and then ran them regularly and this problem stopped.

Update and run the free version of Malwarebytes and see if it finds any problems.
