Everytime I open up IE it starts to open my homepage then it closes and beeps at me. Sometimes it does this several times before it will finally stay open heres my hijack this log. I've never used hijack this before so I'm going to need some help.

Download and run CWShredder from:
http://www.intermute...r_download.html
Use the Fix button.

Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

Reboot into safe mode and delete:
C:\Program Files\PartyPoker <= entire folder

Also I would like to know if you have some program (besides IE itself) that could be blocking popups.

Pieter

IE still closes and my aol closes when I try to open it. I have to click on it like 3 times to get it to finally open and it only does it at start-up.

Can you try without Filtergate and let us know?

This behavior sounds as if it is treating you opening browser windows as if they were "unwanted" (popups)
That is why I would like to know what happens without it.

Pieter

Could you recommned a better Popup Blocker I should d/l

1. A better browser: FireFox. It has a built-in pop-up blocker. I haven't seen a pop-up ad in months.

2. For Internet Explorer, try the free Google Toolbar. It has many nice features, including a pop-up blocker.

3. SP2 updates Internet Explorer to include a pop-up blocker. Are you sure you still need one? :tazz:

That might be exactly the problem. SP2 installed, so probably using two at a time. :tazz:

Glad we could help. ;)

Yeah IE has the popup blocker but it puts that INfo bar on the top of the browser and it's annoying. So I think i'll try either the google or just d/l firefox. My system hasn't run better though since I bought it so i'm pretty happy with the stuff u guys recommended me to d/l. Thanx again.

Thanx,

Garrett
