Yes, new IE windows opens randomly, and all start with "CiD" and changes to something else after a second or two.
I use Firefox though, but mum uses IE, and that is a problem.

So here is the question.

What is CiD ?

Can't tell what Cid stands for; there are way too many possibilities and without further information there is no way to narrow down the options.

question: Does IE open all these windows only after one instance of IE has been opened, or does this occur even you IE has not been opened by the user?

It opens only when I open a IE, that's why I am happy for having FireFox.

The above could be the "Casino" that is showing up. Have you subscribed to "One Care"?
Note the article says it is in Beta.

If that is not the source then I would look in IE addons and Add/Remove programs for gambling sites.

I just got a new window up saying "Zone Media" which I heard has something with this to do.

I also just managed to remove VirusBurst with Norton

I also just found "Windows Live OneCare Safety Scanner"
I also recently downloaded Windows Live Plus

Removal instructions for Virusbursters or Virusburst:

Zone Media info:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/uninstall/...Zone-Media.html

Suggest you follow the directions below. Super Antispyware will probably get rid of Zone Media.
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Whoa, Ive seen VirusBurst 2nd Hand (thanks for the video about it YouTube!) VirusBurst is a Rogue anti-Spyware program trying to purchase its full version, Do not be fooled, VirusBurst is a scam, just like SpyDawn or SpySheriff. Zone media However, ive only heard a little about :thumbsup: , but i think it is Adware.
