chaotic and uncontrollable opening of many windows

By info ·
We have a weird problem. At ad hoc times, dozens of windows will start to open whilst we are working on outlook or in IE. Each time we close them down, they either remain closed or suddenly start opening up again. Whilst they are opening all work must stop. But they can be kept in the background if necessary once all have opened up.

Any ideas?

Also when clicking on a H-link, it goes to a window that tells us we have to locate a Web Browser to get to that address. It may be related or not.

I'd start with checking the logs

and running processes.

Have you scanned for malware?

Perhaps try SFC /scannow.

There are some interesting tools at
that you can use to investigate processes and I/O, among other things.

Sounds like Spyware/Adware to me

Try downloading SpyBot S&amp and scanning your system. Chances are you have some spy ware or adware on your machine.
