My daughter is having computer problems. She ran Norton and it found no virusus. when she opens a window, such as her picture folder it opens many times. If she clicks on a picture it opens many times instead of only once. She has done a system restore but it didn't fix the problem. When she first ran Norton it opened 9 times. SHe had to close 8 of them before it ran. This is happening every time she clicks on a program. Help, please. Angie

Yes, it does. It doesn't matter what she clicks on many of that program open. For instance if she opens wordpad then one after another wordpads open. angie
