    Hello folks. I am having an issue with one of my PCs - it has just started to spontaineously open Windows Help Dialog Boxes. I had 24 open at one time! :eek: Everytime I tried to type an address into the browser, it would open a help box when I click on the address field. Sometimes they just appear without prompting. Does anyone know what could be causing this? Have any suggestions? It gets crazy when all of a sudden they start multiplying!

    I have run a registry repair and Microsoft anti-spyware scans and found nothing. I am using EZ Antivirus as well. I have run HijackThis and have the file if needed.

    Thanks, and I will take all input as useful, even if it seems crazy (y)

    Brad
