Computer keeps opening new browser on its own!
I get onto my home page - MSN - with Internet Explorer - can get to my email, or facebook - and then it starts opening new homepages, one right after another, I can see it doing it at the bottom of the screen and the number of open pages just increases until I shut the computer down. Have running AVG trial and windows scans to find problems, but nothing is showing. Ready to toss it out the window! I am not very tech savvy, but I'm not new to this either. But I am beyond my scope here and don't know what to do next.

Hi and welcome.

Check and post
TSG System Information Utility - found here.

Post a Hjt log - to see what is running on your system.

Hijack this 2.04
  • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
  • Click on Install.
  • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
  • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click Edit > Select All > Copy-and-Paste the uninstall list in the reply box.> Select All then click on Edit > Copy to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT use the AnalyseThis button, its findings are dangerous if misinterpreted.
  • DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
