Malware opening Internet Explorer

  Graham. 17:49 19 Aug 08

Friend reports IE opening on its own, or opening another window on top of itself.

Sites that are coming up are CID Estate Agents, Dell, Insurance and singing Scratch-cards.

They are not pop-ups, but using IE to display ads. IE then will not shut down, until 'Not Responding, End now?' prompt.

Restarted with 'Last good config', but they came back.

Anything known?

AVG didn't find anything.

If AVG didn't find any viruses, it might be worth running a good anti-spyware program, to see whether that reveals anything.

If "last good configuration" didn't work, have you tried using System Restore to roll back to a date before the problem began?
