Tabs opening and closing randomly.

Specs: Windows Vista Home Premium
I use Firefox as my default browser and I recently started having problems with tabbed browsing.
If I click a link on a page, it will open the link in a new tab as well as in the original tab I was using. And if I click on another tab I have up, the tab will just close by itself.

I thought it was just a problem with Firefox so I tried to use Internet Explorer and i'm having the exact same problem on there. So that led me to believe it might be a problem with Vista.
I've also noticed that when i'm having this problem, double clicking programs on my desktop won't open them. I have to right click them and click open.

I've had this problem before but it stopped after I restarted my computer but this time restarting isn't fixing the problem. It started up again last night and eventually just stopped on it's own, but sure enough it started again today.

I've done virus scans/spyware scans, etc.. and it hasn't found anything.

And i'm sorry if this gets posted twice. Because it will probably try to load it in a new tab again.

Does the problem happen in safe mode?
