my computer is 'acting up' so much that i wasn't even able to get this far on my own computer (i'm on a roommate's computer at the moment).
basically, my problem is that, when i log into windows, two IE windows automatically open up, and from then on, a third window will constantly appear then disappear, giving an overall effect of a flashing screen. the process that reappears everytime a new IE window opens up is "kind bird.exe" along with "iexplorer.exe". i don't know what to do about this! it's really annoying.
i ran panda antivirus, and it didn't find anything. i ran ad-aware a number of times, but each time, it finds a browser hijacker, i get rid of it, and it reappears on startup (it's part of the restore registry file).
i realize my computer has a lot of problems, but the main one right now is the IE windows constantly opening.
Any help, even something that will fix this problem temporarily, will be of great help! i plan on reformatting my computer soon, but i need to be able to access it for this week. =/
