Whenever I click "back page" in IE, I end up staying on the same page and get rerouted back to Me. It can happen 6 or 7 times before it goes back a page.

Is there any way to prevent this? It started happening about a week ago.

Thank you in advance for your thoughts and any ideas.

Does not look like you are infected in any way.

Has this only happened since IE7 was installed.

That was what I was afraid of :(

I suggest you look towards a support forum that deals with those issues.

Try pcpitstop (links in the ASAP button from the top of the forum).
