I just did a clean install for a client. Windows 7 Pro

 

She prefers IE as her default browser, so I selected it and set her home page.

Now when I open IE, it opens to her home page but then a second tab opens from microsoft.

No matter what I do, the page keeps coming back. I cannot close it out.

For that reason, post in the Am I infected? What do I do? forum and someone will help you.

 

Good luck!

Hi

 

As you have posted in the Am I infected section I will close this post to avoid confusion.
