Internet Explorer keeps closing!

First time poster.

I think I have contracted a virus/trojan somehow and it is affecting IE v7.

When I try to open a new tab, IE closes of its own accord. It really is a pain!

Would appreciate any help.

Have you tried running a Repair of IE? Do you have any other symptoms that may indicate a browser hack, etc? remember, IE 7 is still in Beta, so there are no guarantees that it will work. :)

Thanks for that.

My suspicions have been aroused by noticing ISMON.exe and Update.exe in my Task Manager all of a sudden.

Even managing to stop Update.exe it doesn't prevent opening a new tab from closing IE.

Hmmm ... ?

Just look at this or this - ismon.exe is related to dangerous parasites!

Delete it immediately!
