When launching IE the window will load for a second or two, then immedietly die and shut down. I disabled the "Enable third-party browser extensions" option from the internet options menu, and that fixed the problem and stopped the browser from crashing. However, the real problem is that it has been doing this to computers on my workplace network all day. It has happened to four computers today, and i have disabled the "enable-third party browser extensions" option on all of them... but i don't just want a band-aid solution. The fact that it seems to be happening all over the network is what worries me. I have ran ad-aware, spybot and bazooka as well as a full virus scan on one of the computers that had the problem and it came up with nothing out of the ordinary. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Has anyone heard of anything similar happening to anyone else? thanks!

I am going to leave, at least for the moment, this duplicate post here in this forum. The other post about this same problem can be found in the Am I Infected forum, and in the interest of avoiding confusion and duplication of effort for both members who wish to help, and for the poster as well, I refer members to the other post:

This thread is therefore closed.
