I am running Windows XP Pro SP3 ( vrs 5.1 Build 2600 )

I get a small box when I start Internet Explorer or click a link

The box measures about 2-inches long and 1-inch high

I have positioned the box to the upper-left corner of the screen and dragged the lower-right corner to fill the screen. But the next time I start another copy of Internet Explorer or click a link I receive another small box

Any help would be greatly appreciated

It can take a very long time to get help in the Hijack This section.

If you believe you are infected with viruses or malware, it might be quicker to get help in the "Am I Infected" section of the forum. They will start you off with some simple scans that could very well get rid of the infection in a very short amount of time.

You can access that section of the forum by clicking the following link...

Btw, does that little screen let you click it closed?

If so, it is probably just a pop up for whatever page you have loaded with IE

Hold it, are you saying that IE opens in that little box, not that a second box opens?

If so, we can fix that here in this thread, that is not caused by malware.

If that is the case, try this....

When that small window opens, take your mouse and set it on the outer edge of the window till you see the 2 little arrows meaning you can move the window, and then move the window out to full screen, both top and bottom. Then click on the square tab on the top right corner to maximize, then refresh the window, then use file exit, and try again. If that don't work, try the same procedure, dragging the window full screen but use a different method to refresh, such as right click on a blank spot on page and refresh, then maximize by doubleclicking top bar, then x out.

You are very welcome, I am so glad that worked.

I am really happy that it finally hit me what you were talking about there, lol, sorry it took a few for my brain to catch on to what you meant.
