I have a Dell Dimension 3000, 2GB RAM, and Windows XP, SP3, updated and Avast Antivirus.
Here lately, when I'm on site that I go to for news such as Yahoo, MSN, TMZ, and I close a page, sometimes after I close a page, it reopens in another tab and sometimes it opens another page of Internet explorer. There are no pop ups of advertisements, no porn, it just reopens the page I just closed. It will open pages that I have closed in 3 or more tabs, which overloads and freezes up my computer. I ran a scan with Eset antivirus and it came up clean. I also ran a scan with MalwareBytes and it was clean.
Anyone with help on soving this will be greatly appreciated ! The computer runs fine, starts fine and shuts down fine, besides the Internet problem. I use Internet Explorer 8.
