This started a couple of months ago, probably and it has me baffled.
I primarily use Firefox 3 as my browser, but also have IE 7 installed. From time to time, if I go to MySpace (using FF) and then try to leave, everything hangs up for a few seconds, then all of a sudden, an IE window will open up and MySpace will start opening up in tab after tab. During this, the computer is totally useless, locked up. All I can do is stare at the tabs opening up in the IE window. The only way I can get out of it is either to just power down the computer (using the power button) or to bring up task manager (it will come up, but it takes a minute). I will end the process for IE, only to have it come right back. If I keep on ending the processes, sometimes I can eventually get it to quit, but more often than not, I just have power down.
Does anyone have ANY clue what this could be from? I assume it's related to MySpace in some way, because it's never happened with any other site. I have run numerous spyware, adware and virus scans since this started and never find anything.
Thanks in advance! :)
