  1. Dear all,

    i am facing a very weird problem on my computer. The moment i enter the url "" , all my internet explorer windows close automatically. Also, even if i enter the word "orkut" in my google search, still the windows close automatically.
    i have tried this with both IE and firefox browsers.

    Please help me in identifying the problem.

    on FF, use tools->Options->Privacy
    at the bottom, click the Settings for Private Data
    clear everything when exiting
    click ok until you're out of the Options

    now quit FF

    relaunch FF and enter that url again

    Thanks guys. But, none of the two things helped. I cleared the private data. And i installed spybot.

    Hoever, the prob still persists.

    You need to run all 3 anti-spyware utilities I listed! Also, try running them in both Normal and Safe Modes.
