    I use aol to surf the web. Lately, when I open a webpage a "blank page - windows internet explorer" starts flashing pages, a new one every second until there are dozens of tabs at the top that say "blank page...". Since I don't use internet explorer, I don't know why this pops up. The frequency has become worse lately.

    I control/alt/delete and try to close the blank page but it says "is not responding" and then another one will pop up in the task manager. The "blank page-windows internet explorer" pages are impossible to close. I usually can close aol from the task manager and that usually stops it, but lately, even opening the task manager is iffy. Sometimes it will open, sometimes not for many tries. This is the most frustrating problem I've ever had (and I've had my share), esp. since I don't even use internet explorer! I did a search for incredimail, coolwebsearch and magentic (advice from another website) and none of these are on my computer. When I right click "blank page" in the task manager and click "go to process", I get "iexplore.exe".

    So, that's it. Can you help? The internet has lots of people with this same problem, but most of them use internet explorer and most of them have windows vista instead of xp as I do.
