  1. Hello,

    This happened one time yesterday: while browsing a social networking site, suddenly Internet Explorer kept opening up multiple windows one after the other, and it wouldn't stop, I had to shut the IE process from the processes running list.

    I'm posting my HJ log. Please check if there's anything suspicious..

    Try this:

    Please do this
    (Some members say they have already tried this in a reply; but later I find it has not been done!)
    The following not only resets all Internet Explorer's settings, but also removes all temp files, all extensions are disabled (toolbars, browser extensions, and Browser Helper Objects), and activeX controls are restored.


    How to use Reset Internet Explorer Settings (RIES)

    To use RIES in Internet Explorer 7, follow these steps:

    1. Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options.
    2. On the Advanced tab, click Reset.
    3. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
    4. When Internet Explorer 7 finishes restoring the default settings, click Close, and then click OK two times.
    5. Close Internet Explorer 7. The changes take effect the next time that you open Internet Explorer 7.

    Note for users who cannot start Internet Explorer 7 for some reason, use RIES from Internet Options in Control Panel.
