Hi, I'm new to this forum and hope someone can assist me. I purchased a new laptop last week (Toshiba Satellite M115-S3144), and twice now, I've had Internet Explorer 6.0 launch 50 new windows (opening up with default home page). This happened once yesterday when I was switching between three open IE windows and once today as I closed one IE window and left two others open.
In both instances, 50 new IE windows opened up, and upon reaching 50, they all closed simultaneously and only the one window I originally had open was left up and running.
I've run Spybot Search & Destroy, Lavasoft Ad-Aware SE Personal, Spyware Blaster, and McAfee Antivirus. I removed all spyware and adware that was detected and have not had the problem reoccur (so far).
I just want to know if this was probably due to spyware or adware or if there could be a possible issue with the new laptop. The first laptop Circuit City gave me kept blacking out, so they replaced it with a new laptop within the first week (which is the one I'm working with now).
Thanks for your patience as I tried to explain this! - Welty
