OK what's happening is that I'm running XP Pro and yes everything is up to date and there is no spyware or adware. But n e ways I open Internet Explorer , lets say to Yahoo email, I leave that window open and open another Internet Explorer window, lets say to msn. Well the yahoo window will close out and only then will the msn window open.
So it's like in folder options where u can open everything in one window and i don't like it that way b/c I can only have one webpage open at a time.
N e 1 know how to undo this. I checked in Internet Option but didn't c n e think.

Do you have any popup blocker's or any Internet Explore plug-in's that may have changed setting's or is blocking you from opening more then one window?

Download HijackThis, This is a installer so it will be easy for you to install and use.

When you install and run it.

1. Hit 'Scan'
2. Your log will come up and the 'Scan' button will change into 'Save log'
3. Save the log onto desktop open it then paste it all in here so we can have a look and see if anything looks wired.

None of the information that it gives can harm your computer.

Nothing much here to fix. Go back into HijackThis and run the scan. Place a checkmark next to the following and hit Fix Checked:

Did you install WeatherBug by yourself? It's adware, but if it doesn't bother you, you may keep it. If you didn't install it, uninstall it then because some other program installed it without you knowing about it.

If you suspect that spyware still might be lurking in your computer, I recommend downloading a program to automatically fix any bad files/entries it finds. Please download Adaware and install it. Make sure to update it when you run it. Also make sure to customize the settings in Adaware for better scan results. Run the scan and fix everything that it finds.

Try this: Open an Internet Explorer Window. click on Tool->Internet Options. Click on the advanced tab. Uncheck the "Reuse windows for launching shortcuts" box. See if that fixes it.

Try repairing Internet Explorer. Go to Start->Settings->Control Panel->Add/Remove Panel and choose Internet Explorer. Click on the option to Repair. You may need your XP CD for this.

If the above fails, try clearing out your cache and temporary internet files. Go into Internet Explorer->Tools->Internet Options and hit:

1. Delete Files (make sure to check the box also)
2. Delete Cookies
3. Clear History


Close IE and restart it to see if the window will still close if you open a second one.

Also try this if it doesn't work. Go to Start->Run and type in sfc /scannow and hit OK.
