    Please,
    How can I stop allowing IE to follow links by itself and automatically open several new IE windows?
    Thanks!

    Thanks Kerri Ann, but it is not a hijack problem, as it only happens when you visit some particular webpage. The page have links that are automatically folowed as if you have clicked on them to open in new full browser windows (not pop-up windows). If you shut one of them then windows are even more multiplicated. If you are lucky to hurry on closing window after window to victoriously overcome the mess, then it is over for any other pages. It doesn´t happens again unless if you access that very url (or some other with the same problem). So, as I WANT to acess them, I would just like to know how to hinder IE to follow the links that it is being forced to follow.

    In the menu select Tools->Internet Options. Go to the Security tab in the window that opens and click Custom Level. Find Scripting and set every option to Disable or Prompt.
