    IE keeps popping up or loading chat!

    hi, Internet Explorer keeps popping up whenever i type more than a few words, really annoying, i've tried malwarebytes antimalware/outpost firewall/spybot/spywareguard and AVG scan

    still having the same problem, probably related to trojan vundo or hupigon, is a reinstall of XP the only solution? many thanks

    try doing a saystem restor or run you anti virus etc in safe mode. I think spyware doctor is really good with outpost and nod 32. having tried them all in safe mode and it still fails. try del your system restore files and do another scan.

    if that does not work then backup and reinstall.

    I'd highly recommend ]this tool. It's free and very effective.

    thanks, looks great, good advice, rep left for both!

    You're welcome. Another suggestion would be to forget about IE altogether and use FF instead.:thumbsup:

    problem i found after holding off on reinstalling xp was a keyboard conflict from god knows where, damn hp keyboards, installed new driver than uninstalled another driver and it seemed to work fine! i had a few trojan problems, but at least my pc is protected by a decent firewall etc now, after doin a bit o research

    all good then.
