    The first day I got my new Dell Laptop, with Windows Vista home basic (SP1) I had 50+ IEs open one after another. The only way to stop it was to crash it. This happens every couple of days. I have run virus scan and even reinstalled the factory image but it happened again today. Anything I can do?

    Think it was related to AIM 6.0. When AIM would start up it would open IE to their webpage. When I closed it, it opened all the windows with the same AIM web page. I changed my AIM preferences and haven't had the problem yet.
