IE7 won't stop opening tabs!

It's Loopy!

I had two machines develop this problem within two days of one another. Seems only to occur after hibernation - and I think it all started after a MS update.

I run current AVG pro on both machines as well as adaware scans and ran Stinger on one of the machines. Nothing to report.

All of my research suggests a trojan but there isn't much out there about this error and the cause is speculative.

Thanks!

The link made it look like an ad.

If it only happens on your own site, it's a problem with the site. Ask the webmaster to correct it.
If it happens will many or all sites, it's a problem with your browser that needs to be solved.
