Hi,

I'm having terrible trouble with my desktop computer (I'm writing this on the laptop as the dtop is unuseable).

The problem is, every time I turn it on, it automatically opens countless versions of internet explorer.

If I am quick, I can press ctrl/alt/del and get task manager up and then try to close as many IEs as I possibly can, but in the end it just keeps going on opening up and overloading the computer.

Is there any way I can bring IE back under control?

Hi RSP
Download the Microsoft Autoruns from here --> Open the .zip file and then run the autoruns.exe --> go to File --> Click Save (to your Desktop) -->Then attach the autoruns.arn in your next Post.
