Internet closes itself

August 6, 2010 at 16:08:56
Specs: Windows XP

My internet closes itself along with any other windows that are open of the same browser when i type the word 'Panda' in google.

I've no idea why, I've tried Mozilla, IE, Google chrome and another browser but I forgot.

This is also a problem for my photobucket, it has the word Panda in it, and when I try to view one of my picures it closes the window down.

Munchi, my guess (and it's strictly a guess) is that you have a redirect that keys on the word 'panda' (who knows why?). I'd suspect a nasty (virus, worm/trojan, etc.).
Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Superantispyware (info only. I’m not paid for recommendation) can do the job and you can get it free @:
http://www.superantispyware.com/
among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed. Dunno about Windows 7 or later.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update Superantispyware prior to running and disable 'restore' (restart after cleaning) so the nasty doesn't get put back. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try.
HTH.
