I'm not sure what kind of issue this is, I think either software or memory. I am using Windows XP version 5.1 service pack 2 on a eMachines computer that is about 3 years old.

When I'm surfing the net I often have more than one explorer window open. I'm not sure if that's bad for my computer but I did it for a long time with no problems. But now my internet explorer will stop opening new windows after a certain point and I have to restart my computer to fix it. I'll right click a link and scroll to 'open in new tab' but when the new tab opens it just says 'connecting' but it never loads.

This started happening a few months ago but I didn't pay attention because it took a very long time to happen. But recently it's become more frequent. If I'm searching for something, like say on Ebay, I loose the ability to open new windows after about 30 minutes and have to restart my computer.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

I suspect some type of spyware, trojan, or virus. Post a HijackThis log in the Security forum.
