Multiple copies of IE running

by lablover / May 12, 2006 9:48 PM PDT

I'm sure I have been able to open a second copy of IE on my Win XP Home PC, with 1024 memory.
Tried to do that this AM, and the second copy does not open as a seconf window. The first one is running, and the second opens on top of the firat.

Is there a setting somewhere that has gotten changed?
Where should I look?

I checked the link you provided, and cannot fine anything with the word YAHOO in the list.
I am running Google toolbar though.

Just ran Spybot,have deleted all temp files, and current anti-virus (Norton).

Other suggestions?

lablover, Here's Response #13 in the threas from the link I gave you.

''had a problem like this and none of the solutions above solved it, but I was able to resolve the problem.
tools>internet options>programs>manage add-ons
now I found out what was causing my problem was Yahoo companion BHO and disabled it, anyone of the addons can cause the proble so you would have to do an elimination method on it.''

Yahoo is indeed mentioned.

When I looked where you told me to look, on my PC, nothing was there concerning Yahoo or BHO. I looked twice too!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
