IE launching on its own

  kindly 12:17 24 Mar 2008

I have in the last two days had IE starting itself up when I leave the computer running on its own. Explorer does not connect to any site but the address in the address bar is click here
I have ran my anti virus/spyware program (nod32) which is up to date. Spybot search and destroy. They find nothing out of the ordinary.
Any ideas please. I have started to use IE7 in the last three weeks but because its just started I dont think its that. I have not downloaded anything for a week or two either.
Thanks for any help.

I run through with the superantispyware and it found a lot that my other programs never picked up on. Will go watch a bit tv now and leave the computer alone to see if it is ok in an hour or so.

Hi all. Its still there. Still launching on its own. I have just tried a restore but it failed. Never thought about it before but my windows updates are on auto update and install. Has anyone heard of any of them causing this type of problem. I am thinking of uninstalling the last couple to see if that does anything.

It's not due to Windows Updates. Plenty of references to the site you mention relating to spyware from a google search. Try another anti-spyware app, Spywareterminator for example click here, if no luck run HJT click here and post the log at this forum click here

Cheers brundle, I will give it a try

Done that brundle. There is a lot on that site to read.

You don't have to understand the intricacies, someone there should be able to solve your problem. I can see the cause but they will have lots more helpful observations and advice. Good luck with it

Cheers brundle. If you can see the cause then hopefully I will get it sorted. I cannot put up with the wife calling me everytime a window pops up, It eats into MY drinking time while on holiday. LOL.

HI all, looks like problem solved. Although I did put my posting on the maleware site. I did a bit digging of my own. Going through my processers in task manager I saw an entry called "Isys32.exe". This one had not been there a few days ago so a bit of looking about and found it was a maleware program that had seated in windows32 folder.
I made a system restore and used "move on boot" to get rid of it. The problem has stopped but I will have to switch of my restore to clean that out if all is still ok in a few days, just incase it has invaded that.
Thanks to advice given "again" here to help sort it all out.
