IE Problem - Help!

Reply Tue 15 Jun, 2004 01:36 pm
For some reason, I can only open one browser. If I try to open another one, it kills the existing window. It doesn't matter how I do this either, whether I choose "File - New - Window" or if I double click on the desktop icon. What could cause this? Is it a hijack of some sort?

PestPatrol, Spybot S&D, and Ad-Aware report nothing.

Perhaps you need to repair your IE.
Try to download IE 6.0,and restore it.

It doesn't sound like a hijack cjhsa, they don't usually want to close windows. Mr. Green

Sounds more like some bugginess. Restoring IE 6 might, indeed, be a good idea.

Finally some responses! Thanks but I already figured it out. It turned out to be a Yahoo toolbar plugin (browser helper). I downloaded BHOCop and used that to figure out what was causing the behavior. I also discovered that I had "jimmyhelp", a trojan BHO. I simply renamed the problem jimyhelp dll to whatever.dll.**** and rebooted. I never would have known it was there if not for BHOCop.

cj, do you have a Pop-up blocker? Try holding the ctrl button down while you open the new browser window.

Definitely tried that Swimpy, also disabled my popup blocker - to no avail. See my post above.
