Hy
i was wanderin if anyone had the same problem:
My IE sometimes act really weird. for example today i dont know how an instance of IE opened by itslef with the text set to Large...
And last time while i was checking the pandasoftware.com page, it openened almost 35 IE windows....

Is it possible that the MSN toolbar i'm using is the reason?

Sounds like your loaded with adware. Try running Adaware or Spybot search and destroy. do a google search for them there free and very very good.

Set your cache to 5 mb's and set the page to look for a new version everytime. No need for all that cache space, particularly if you are on broadband. I have to agree with ThatKid', though -- sounds like there's a bit more going on here than browsers cache. The MSN toolbar could be a possibility. I'm pretty sure most of us around here use the Google toolbar instead.

Saw your comments that you run Adaware and Spybot -- but to get 35 windows pop up is way beyond normal. I wrote a proggy once for fun to do just that...Symantec quaranteens it as a worm everytime, but it's not really, just a simple javascript.

Odd for sure.
