[duplicate] iexplore runs by itself

Unread postby Crimson531 » January 16th, 2010, 9:35 pm

I'm having an issue with internet explorer. For some reason the process iexplore.exe will run by itself without me using internet explorer. Occasionally, a window will pop up saying the address is nets.com, I think. It's a site that sells stuff. I'm not sure if the two are related, but any help I can receive to make my computer run better would be greatly appreciated. Thank you again (^_^)
