Automatically Exiting

  penglais 13:22 06 Sep 2004

I currently use Windows XP. I have a problem accessing some - but not all - internet sites. If I try to access some sites from links or by entering the URL, I get taken to the site, but within seconds I'm exited and returned to my desktop.

This also happens on start up. My homepage will appear for a few seconds then exit. My second attempt to enter the homepage is aalways successful.

Would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

I've run Ad-aware, Spybot and AVG - but the problem still remains.

Could be a fault with the particular browser you are using. Many people on this forum have two or more browsers installed. If you have problems on one maybe another might work OK.

I tried to download the IE Repair option, but as it happens that was one of the sites where I automatically get exited.
