    My old computer was fried by water. So I have a preused desk top from a friend. All of a sudden firefox was continously opening windows and there would be multiple tabs in each window. The only way to stop it would be to open task manager and end them all. It does it every time I open firefox. I also cannot run spybot search and destory. The program has been uninstalled and installed again but I still can not open it. I bought Norton for the computer, but every time I install that, my internet quits and only works if I uninstall norton.
    System: eMachines
    windows xp 2002

    Main focus- firefox what is wrong with it?
    Thank you for your help
