    Ditch IE, use mozilla or firefox instead.

    At least attempt to answer the question - comments like this help no one.

    I've seen something strange happen before. When I tried to close a toolbar in IE, it actually closed a different one. Meaning if I tried to close Google, it actually shut off my links toolbar. So I had to choose Links, to close Google.

    I'm not sure what causes this, but it could be similar. Just remember what each one represents for the future.

    BTW

    sounds like a toolbar/adware issue...... run adaware. Even though you have a pop-up blocker, some toolbars like yahoo let their own adwares through.

    normally only have 1 firewall on. I do not recommend norton firewall at all. I've tried it. Zonealarm is far superior and has better compatibility.
