    Hi, I been having problems recently with my IE8, I am on XP. The problem is my computer keeps opening multiple pages with out me even doing anything, upto 100 pages sometimes! I look in my task manager an I have 2 or 3 iexplore.exe listed as open.
    Virgin told me that my laptop has probably been hijacked and that they could sort it out if I signed up to a £10/month maintanence contract??
    Any one with any ideas out there?

    Go toin IE Tools, internet Options, Advanced Tab, and try resetting IE. Let us know what happens after that.
