|Could be. Does this happen even when you are not on Internet Exploder I mean Explorer? I would just switch to Google Chrome or Firefox personally but I know there are some web sites that only work on IE. |
As to it being a virus have you tried any Virus scanners yet? If so which ones. I like AVG Free or if you are willing to pay Kasperski.
If you want to make sure and have a little understanding of how Bots or Zombies work then I recommend you go to the command line and run a NETSTAT command to see if there are any ports being opened to internet addresses that are known to be bad.
Good louck. You might have better kuck posting this in the Virus Forum.
