Hi,

Sometimes, when I attempt to close IE6 it starts opening up an infinite number of browser windows instead. I am not entirely sure but I think it occurs mainly when I have Skype or Facebook running.

I am not able to reproduce the bug consistently but it appears every now and then, it's annoying and the only option is to restart my computer.

I am on WinXP, SP3 - updated from SP2 recently though. I checked with "MBAM", quick check and it didn't report anything, also did a ComboFix check a while ago. I googled for malware/virus which could have this effect and did not find anything.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,

/David

Have a look in the Event Viewer for any errors at the time of the problem.

To open the Event Viewer go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer. Alternately, go to Start > Run and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Check in all the categories.

If you find an error that occurred at the time right-click on it and select properties. Copy the information in the window and post it back here. This will help us diagnose your problem.

Try reinstalling IE6:
  • From the Start menu, select Search, select All Files and Folders.
  • Select More Advanced Options and place a checkmark beside Search Hidden Files and Folders option.
  • Ensure that Search System Folders and Search Subfolders are also checked.
  • In the All or Part of the File Name box, type ie.inf
  • In the Look In drop-down menu, select C: or the letter of the hard drive that contains the Windows folder.
  • Click the Search button.
  • In the search results pane, find the ie.inf file located in Windows\Inf folder.
  • Right click the ie.inf file and click Install on the context menu.
  • Reboot the computer when the file copy process is complete.
