IE6 Opening on its own??

  swanny2 12:44 12 May 2009

Ive still got this problem but not as often now.
This is randomon what site i click on ,could be any ,then all of a sudden loads of windows keep opening saying Page Cannot be displayed.
Now the forum i use when you click on someones post it turns Red so you know youve read it.But after these windows start opening i have too shutdown manually,then when i restart and go back too my Forum all the Posts are back in blue.
This is the only thing ive found out upto now, when these windows keep poppiing up.Ive no idea whats the Problem ,as its annoying esspecially if im tyyping a long essay then have close down quick an lose everything.Any ideas anyone Please?

Maybe run your Security programs.And download Malwarebytes [free or trial] or superantispyware update and run.

a few days ago i had to get rid of malware and the only one that got rid for me was kaspersky,so it might be worth you running the online scanner to see if that comes up with anythingclick here

Those 2 programs that I mentioned are 2 of the best for removing problems there is not much that gets past them.Unfortunately a lot of folk stick with Spybot or Ad-Aware and they are no longer up to the job. So maybe worth a try if you have not used either of them yet.

running internet explorer with no add ons might be worth a shot if you havn't tried apologies if you have already tried

If using I/E do you have the pop up blocker switched on.Or maybe update your Host file I posted the new one yesterday.

Make sure you have the latest Flash and Java programs.And make sure you remove the old versions.
