    I was wondering if someone was willing to do me a favour. I have www.nascar.com set as my homepage. Please see my screenshot for clarification about what I am talking about.

    It seems today that when it loads the homepage, the green tab (see pic) is on Trackpass which uses Java instead of just on the Home tab (I think NASCAR.com did this because they want us to buy Trackpass). Trackpass uses Java, so whenever I start the Internet now, Java loads. Even if I change web sites, Java is still on there until I shut IE off. If I try to open the Internet multiple times, Java will load 2,3,4 times depending on how many windows I have open (see pic).

    If anyone would be willing, could you please set your homepage temporarily to www.nascar.com, shut off the browser, and then see if the page opens with the Trackpass tab as well as Java being launched in the system tray. Thanks! :)

    Go to Control Panel - double click on Java
    In the Java Control Panel, go to the Advanced tab
    Open the Miscellaneous section
    Uncheck 'Place Java icon in System Tray'
    Click Apply, OK

    Thanks for the tip, but it seems like they fixed nascar.com as it is back to normal again, without the Trackpass tab or Java loading up. I'll make note of your suggestion in case I need it in the future, though. Thanks for the help! :)

    I'll mark this one Solved.
