IE Explorer closes windows

729 Views 12 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  IndyGunFreak
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.
