So I've had my PC up at my parents house all week while I was staying with them on vacation, the Thing worked great the whole time. Then I come home, hook it up, and about 2 hours into my being home with the PC running and online. Firefox (Latest Update) started taking me back to google. Continually, also It was taking me back to one of my bookmarked forum sites. I've noticed though, that if I'm typing something, it usually waits untill I stop typing, and between the time I stop typing and am looking to click somewhere or press enter, the page just reloads. I am using Windows XP, with the latest updates installed. and I've tried uninstalling firefox and re-installing it. I've changed the homepage. and it just goes to whatever I set as the homepage. and when I have my ethernet cable not hooked up it doesn't seem to happen as much. but it has opened on its own 2 times while I was Offline. I've tried scanning with AVAST, and it found nothing, I'm about 3/4 through my spybot scan, and so far its found nothing.
anyone have any idea how I can fix this? if I use IE it does the same thing, just reloads my home page. But IE has never opened on its own. I looked through my Processes in my task manager, and theres nothing I dont usually see in there either.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. right now I'm stuck using this old school IBM thinkpad thats extremely slow.
