I'm having a [bleep] of a time figuring out what keeps opening my IE windows.
I've run an array of programs: AdAware, Microsoft AntiSpyware, Spybot S&D, BHO Demon, SpySubtract and more.
My problem is this: When I'm connected to the internet, an IE window opens every 5 minutes (the first one will usually cascade into a few more). However, if I'm not connected to the internet, just one will open after 5 minutes, but they won't keep opening.
I've deleted a number of bum Reg Keys. I've restarted multiple times in safe mode, after running 1 scan and fixing any problems each time. I've cleared explorer history, cache, cookies. Cleared all questionable programs out of the startup dirs. Something is hiding somewhere that these programs aren't catching.
What's my next step? Post a Hijack This log here? Jump off of a bridge? Move to Nepal and become a monk? Build a time machine, go back in time and join the Luddites?
Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.
