Windows keeps opening internet explorer, and redirecting me to http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/validate/
to validate, but starts it automatically. Then it just sits there for a while, succeeds, and then opens up a page offering me to download the Microsoft security essentials (which I do not want). If I close this add window it goes away, but then comes back later.
Why does it do this? How can I make it stop.
I already confirmed, my OS is licensed, and activated.
