Uncontrollable multiplying browswer windows opening and freezing the computer (XP) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using Windows XP and while I was attempting to open a web link, multiple (MANY) browser windows began opening up uncontrollably and clogging up the works until the computer froze.  What causes this and how can I prevent it from happening again?

  • Perform a full antivirus/antispyware scan of your computer. Check all the installed Internet Explorer add-ons and disable all the unnecessary ones.
