I'm not sure what's causing this or when it really started, but I have Internet Explorer version 6.0. I've noticed that on a daily basis (but not every time), when I click on a link or try to open a new browser window, it closes all of my IE windows except for the one I just opened, and there is a Yahoo toolbar on the window.

I have to manually set IE to not show the Yahoo toolbar each time.

Anyone have any ideas what is causing this to occur?

My first suggestion would be to stop using a buggy kernel-level browser that's known to allow anything on the Web to infect your system.

Since you've probably heard that already, but chose to ignore that advice (even when it was flatly suggested by various US .gov agencies related to IT security) for whatever reason, you could:

2. Try updating to IE7; that will overwrite most of the old files.

3. Install a Mozilla browser product.

4. Install Opera.

Good luck!

All right, guy...your machine, your headache.

At least do yourself a favor and GET INFORMED.

Here's one reason why...

THE US GOVERNMENT has sent out a warning out to internet users through its Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT), pleading with users to stop using Microsoft's Internet Explorer.

Honestly, download and install Mozilla/Firefox.

It is a LOT better than IE: WAY more stable, faster & tabbed browsing is THE BEST!!!

OK, I've downloaded Mozilla Firefox and it seems to work fine except for one thing I've noticed so far:

Some pics embedded in GT threads don't show up. What setting am I missing?

Tools/Content: Make sure the "Load Images" box is checked, and you probably want "for the originating website only" box to be UNchecked.

Yup, since most folks use photobucket, putfile, or their own website, to host the images to save bandwidth for Eric..

Firefox or Opera are the only real choices in a Browser. MSIE is a mess.
