If I open a link from a page, in the "open in new window" when I close it, a box comes up saying IE has to close. It also closes all the pages I have open.
I have done a "Trojan scan" "Virus Scan" Cancelled add ons. Deleted every tool bar. Nothing seems to be helping.

Help please. It's driving me nuts. :)

If you are running XP with SP2 and you're still using IE6, try updating to IE7 which has tabbed browsing so you only need to have one window open no matter how many pages you load. If already using IE7, try Opera or Firefox. Both have tabbed browsing. Opera is my favourite as it starts quicker and loads pages faster than any other Windows browser. Both are free, and both will import your IE favorites.

Opera: http://www.opera.com/download/

Firefox: http://www.mozilla-e...oducts/firefox/
