When I open Internet Explorer on my windows XP sp2 laptop it starts up, shows a dialog asking me if I would like to restore the last open pages or just go to my homepage. I have tried both options but the results are still the same. When I click either of the options the homepage starts loading but then the internet window dissapears. The iexplore process is still running though.

I have so far uninstalled/reinstalled IE 8 on the computer, tried to run it with add-ons disabled, cleaned my computer with MBAM and done a virus scan with my antivirus and restarted the computer several times. So far nothing has helped.

The only other info I can give at this time is that when I have gotten through to the internet explorer main window (that is, choose wether I want to restore or go to my homepage) a new iexplore.exe process starts up, my main window dissapears and the small iexplore.exe process closes again, leaving only the original iexplore.exe process running.

Thankful for your help!
