Problems w/ Firefox and Explorer

I've been having problems with IE and Mozilla Firefox browsers.

IE problem - Internet explorer refuses to open things in a new window. If I click on links, explorer will open them, but the new page just replaces the last link I was viewing in the same window. Sometimes I like to search for a couple things at the same time, but IE will not let me have two explorer windows open at once. If I load explorer and start to try to do my mail, and try to open explorer in aonther window, the new explorer window replaces the old one and I am left with only one. Hope this makes sense. People keep telling me to fix my preferences and that it is probably one of my spyware programs (I have adaware, spyware dr., and systemsuite going...maybe another one). I have looked at my preferences, but am not really sure what to look for. :tazz:

Firefox problem - Given my problems with explorer I decided to try Mozilla, as I hear it is safer/faster anyway. A friend tried to fix a different problem a while back and downloaded Mozilla. I tried to open it, but it wouldn't load...it said the connection was timed out. So...I uninstalled it and downloaded it again. It still will not load...I just get a white screen, it pretends like it is going to do something, and then I get the connection timed out box. ;)

Thanks in advance!
