same Issue

by husp1 In reply to internet Explorer

friend of mine had same issue, as per the previous comment it turnd out to be a hijack on the browser. spy-bot, spy-sweeper, and the new ad-aware se, all seem to be a good solution for this. try lavasoft or webroot sites for downloads.

I had the same thing. Went from being able to use IE ok, to it suddenly doing what you described. I too used a adware/spyware remover, which solved the problem.

I'd recommend doing a free scan, see IF you are infected with Spyware, first (http://noadware.**

If you are, remove it and see if that fixes the problem.

My spyware problems started when I installed P2P file sharing software!! (in this case, Kazaa)
