I have no idea what is causing this or why it seems to happen, but I cannot have more than 1 internet explorer open at any given time. I ran all my spyware/malware/virus checkers (Norton Internet Security 2004, Webroot Spysweeper 4.5.3, Ad-Aware SE 1.06r1) and they came up with nothing. Is this non-Windows related, meaning that this is caused by something a hacker would come up with? Thanx much!

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

How are you trying to open a second IE? Usually if you already have the browser open and on a web page and there is a link on the page that you would like to open without closing the original web page, all it needs is to r-click on the link and choose "open in new window". Is this what you are doing?

Either way... I open it using the shortcuts and opening it via the R-click and "open in new window." Somebody want to please tell me why is this happening?! I don't mean to sound rude, but this is the first thing that's happened to me that I can't figure out (in computers, obviously).

Go to tools, internet options, advanced, and uncheck reuse windows for launching shortcuts; see if this helps.

Nope... good advice though
