  1. For some reason, on my other computer, the explorer page closes the second that it has completely loaded. I have run ad-aware & gotten rid of as much as I could, but I'm clueless as how to fix the problem...please help! :confused:

    Have a look here and follow the directions exactly. That should help clear up some problems.

    BTW

    And by the way please don't post in more than one forum, it makes it very hard to solve your problem quickly because people are posting different solutions in two different places.

    Ie

    if you still ahve problems i suggest you try firefox, it smokes the **** off internet explorer (which aint hard to do i admit) and its fast with barley any popups. Also makes it harder for spy/adware to get into your com :)
