ie opens multiples windows in vista

By tsolder ·
I was just starting a session with ie in vista, and the next thing I knew the screen was filled with cascading reiterations of ie, running up 88 open windows!.
I unplugged my wlap, and kept right-clicking the taskbar to close group. Eventually it did, and everything 'seemed' normal, except nort is dead.
I was finally able to open norton, but found it was clobbered; av had been turned off, and it won't scan, saying I need to uninstall and reinstall.
Classic gut feeling of 'virus', but anyone hear of this?
thanks, tom

From another PC download and install these programs and copy the the installed folder along with VundoFix.exe to a USB Stick.

Restart the PC in Safe Mode and turn off System Restore insert the USB Stick and run Sophos.bat when it is completed run VundoFix.exe. When the PC reboots start in Safe Mode again and run Spybot.

Download Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2 and install it. Update it. http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html

Download Sophos and the latest IDE Files. Install it and extract the IDE files to the C:\SAV32CLI folder.

Copy and paste the below two lines into Notepad and save the file to the USB Stick as sophos.bat, it will scan and remove.

VundoFix is a freeware removal tool for many of the known variants of Trojan.Vundo, Trojan.Conhook and other similar infections.

Double-click VundoFix.exe to run it.
Click the Scan for Vundo button.
Once it's finished scanning, click the Remove Vundo button.
You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files, click YES
Once you click yes, your desktop will go blank as it starts removing Vundo.
When completed, it will prompt that it will reboot your computer, click OK.

Also download and install CCleaner to tidy up your Registry. Let it run through until there are no errors left.

The Sophos SAV32CLI folder can be safely deleted after it is copied to USB.
