I was on my pc.. which has vista 32bit.. and all of a sudden, it went mad, it threw open a dozen programmes, including skype and command prompt.. along with opening about 30 windows to Logitech's website, but that might have been because it also opened my webcam...

has anyone got any ideas what the hell went on ?

it did freeze for a bit after that too, but i guess that might be because it opened so much stuff.... seriously, all these windows opened within seconds

please help

thank you :huh:

What were you doing?
What site(s) where you on?
Did you see any popup messages and perhaps click on one?

You can always go back a couple of days and do a reset?

The crew here needs more information and you may need to post in the Am I Infected forum?
The only easy day was yesterday.

I was on my own site webprocafe.com ... so I know i have not picked anything up from there

I did have a couple or normal windows open.. like 'computer' and also a mapped network via ftp, but never had any problems before

unfortunately, every time I have ever tried to go back on vista, it always seems to fail.. even though I know its on.. so thats not really an option.
