Internet Expolrer opens multiple pages

  plsndrs3 11:14 01 Dec 2004


I use Firefox 0.9 for browsing & Avant occassionally.

From time to time, a web page automatically opens IE - but, when it does, I get about 40 pages open all with a page display error. OS is XP home and IE 6.0

I run Avast regularly [it's up to date], usual anti-spyware programs and all critical updates but not SP2.

It's more annoying than anything else - closing the 30 windows by right clicking the system tray - any ideas?

Which anti spyware program are you using?
If your not using Ad-Aware SE personal it may be worth a try as it sorted out several problems that were left by other anti spyware programs on my system.

Adaware SE & Spybot and use both regularly and keep them updated. Also have Prevx sitting in the background.

Maybe your IE is corrupt - worth a repair?
