Internet Explorer gone Berserk

I have a problem. (Well, that's not actually new, is it.) From time to time, without warning, as I'm looking for something or other on the 'net, Internet Explorer will suddenly open a blank page and keep on doing so regardless of what I try to do to close the page. My ISP is AOL and I've found the only way to solve the problem is to give the three-finger salute (ctrl+alt+delete) and get the hell offline. And sometimes that, too, takes a repeated command to even work.

It's not a constant problem but it has happened three or four times in the past two or three months. Any thoughts on what causes this? Or how to fix it?

@Merry Andrew,
The solution may appear drastic, but it works. First shut down IE and all open programs. Next shut down the computer. Remove all cables and store computer in a closet until Spring. Use the time to catch up on reading and complete the chores on your honeydew list.

I have the same problem, Merry. It only seems to happen, however, when I explore the bestiality sites. Perhaps that is your problem as well?

@gustavratzenhofer,
I dunno, Gus. Is A2k considered a bestiality site?

My best guess is you've picked up a rather benign Trojan that is playing games with your computer. I would run a good malware/spyware cleaner....would probably fix the problem.
