I have windows XP SP 2 and for the last few hours I have been unable to browse anything. What happens is this: I click a link or hit a button or whatever and the browser automatically goes back before I can do anything on the page. What's worse this is also true when trying to explore my drives. Double clicking an icon only lets me see it's contents for a second before going back.
Online I can open a new tab that's blank and open any page in it, as well as right click things and open them as new tabs. So it seems that my computer just wants to keep browsers in the same place, but has no qualms opening to anyplace in particular. This probelm occures on firefox, google chrome, IE8, and whatever the little browsery type thing in windows (for c drive and all that) is called.
I ran a complete scan of my system with PC Tools Spyware Doctor, which did turn up the VB.BFP trojan. Removed it, but the problem continues. So I am at a loss.
Thanks for your help!
Edit: Just after writing this the problem stopped. The only thing I did between getting here (when it was still a problem) and now is I ran a DDS scan. Now I'm REALLY at a loss, everything's working fine. Yet, now web pages load slower, but that could just be because I'm on a wireless network that does that sometimes.
