So when I open my browser, either Chrome or IE, it will stay open for just a second and then poof, its gone. No error message, nothing.
Does this sound like something a virus would do?
Thank you,

Please post the browser's versions and try running safemode to check on the difference? What protection softwares are you currently running?

Go into your control panel in the start menu and locate the Internet Options. In the internet options page select the advanced tab and click Reset located at the bottom of the window. Do you have Antivirus or Anti- spyware/malware software installed on the computer at all?
