You are not alone. I am having the same experience on a Win7 PC here. It kills IE and FF immediately after they are started, and stops the Opera installer as well. I have a feeling this is a new pest, as yours is the only post I have found describing this so far.

Unfortunately that thread points to a completely different problem. In our case, not only will IE not even load, but none of the other browsers on the system will load either. In the thread you point to the problem is IE only, and effects search engines, not browser loading.
Thanks for the reply, tho.

I see now a couple people in the "Am I infected" forum seem to have our problem, but there are no solutions yet. I watch with bated breath...

i think that the problem is that a certain webpage is conflicted with iexplore.exe
i think it is a script on the home page that has sort of jammed iexplore
if i had to guess it is a script on a msn page that asks whether you want IE to be your default browser

you will notice that if you turn off your machine and then reboot and then go to your website it takes more time on the first opening to "jam" than the second and subsequent tries
if you could insert something between the opening and jam you might have a chance

like you waiting for method



Well, I don't think that is what is causing the problem here. Anything from a webpage would be in the IE cache and shouldn't interfere with FF as well, tho maybe it could if it found it's was into the temp files. As I have cleared the temp files, that doesn't seem likely.

I caved and started a thread in "Am I infected", but nobody has yet responded.
