I'm running IE6 in Windows XP Home Edition on my laptop.
When I boot up, IE opens once with my home page. I've checked out the start up file, but it isn't requested to open at start up.
When the computer is left untouched for 30 mins, IE opens again unprompted (to my home page), 2 seconds later another window opens, followed by another and another until 43 IE windows are open and the system comes to a grinding halt. I then close the IE windows but every 2 seconds another opens and another and another. I eventually switch the computer off and boot up again.
I've tried to rectify by putting pop up killer software on but to no avail.
My Norton Antivirus doesn't detect anything.
I've done a system restore but it still does it.
Coincidently when i switch from battery to mains, IE opens unprompted (once only) - don't know if this is relevant.
I hope somebody can help me because it's driving me mad!
