Limit The Number of IE Windows

Specs: Windows XP, Pentium 4 - 640 @ 3.2 GHz


It seems that whenever I visit a certain website ( my IE browser goes completely nuts on me! All of a sudden all these IE windows start popping up displaying "The Page Cannot Be Found" and I can't control it. I constantly end up clicking on the "X" at the top right hand corner to close the window, but it takes so long to respond to me clicking on it that by the time it does close at least 5 more open up. I get that annoying window that states the appication has frozen and I can either "End Now" or "Cancel" the request.

Eventually the system will pretty much crash, and everything closes down, except for one or two windows and most of my system tray icons have disappeared.

What I wanted to find out is this ; Is there any feature within IE that will allow me to limit the number of IE windows that are open at any given time? I have found a small application that works, however I'm still in the trial period and when that's over I have to shell some money out. So if I can adjust a setting within IE that would be much more cost effective.

But....just in case there is no such setting and anybody else is having the same problem as me, you might want to check out a peice of software called "IE Manager" by "" It's small and works great (but of course, when the trial period is over, you gotta pay - which is what I'm sure I'll end up doing in the end anyways).

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks people!

I've got Microsoft Antispyware & Ad-Aware. Used to have Spybot but nothing worked, I kept getting those windows pop up.

This is frustrating.
