I have just encountered a problem with IE Windows opening. This starts when I open IE. I have McAfee but it does not find anything. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

When I click on the IE icon to open, I receive an error (unknown software exception 0xc0000409 occurred in the application at location 0x01f9c8b2). It then proceeds to continually open additional IE windows automatically. I've seen as many as 30+ windows before I was able to shut the PC down. The windows open about every second. I've since removed IE from the system and downloaded a new copy from Microsoft. It seems to have solved the problem.

That's interesting, would have thought it was spyware but apparently not. Oh well as long as it's fine now. Was it IE 8 Beta you got?
