When openinh Hotmail IE opens page after page

  bof:) 13:12 13 Jul 07

Hi all,

Just spoke to friend who is having problems with Hotmail. When he opens it, Internet Explorer starts to open page after page. He says upto 50 pages at a time all over the screen.

As I only see him occasionally does anyone know what is causing this?

I thing he uses XP but dont know which version.
I'm not sure which version of IE he uses.

I've suggested he downloads AVG spyware and run it.

His upto date Mcafee's finds nothing.

Many thanks,for all help given, Mike

Im almost certain its Spyware/Malware or even a virus bof:).

Send this link to him for some safe programs to run. click here

Im also wondering if its something within his Hotmail account that he maybe clicking on.
He should delete everything in the account asap !

Thanks for that skidzy. I've emailed the page you gave to him.

Do you mean delete all emails held in Hotmail?
