Hi,

my Internet explorer is rendered completely unusable by multiple windows that come up whenever I use IE. Its some form of search page. I have repeatedly changed my homepage back to google from a best-search.cc page and it keeps going back. The windows also occure if I go directly to another page by clicking an outlook express link. I get the page of the link but then the windows start openning. If you press any key whilst the window is open it says "Page loading, please wait" but it never loads it just opens another wiindow about every 5 seconds. This is really annoying and I tried using netscape to get around the problem and I find it keeps grinding to a halt. Please help I love win98 and don't want to have to leave it.

Cheers,
Chris

Sart > Run msconfig
Click on the tab marked "Startup"
unckeck all items except System Tray and Explorer.

If the problem no longer persists then one of the items in the starup is the culprit you just need to track it down.
