Windows Explorer + Internet Explorer Closing Immediately...

Q: Windows Explorer + Internet Explorer Closing Immediately...

Hey, I am having problems with my other computer suddenly closing both Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer applications, such as Control Panel, My Computer, etc...(Windows XP Home Edition)
When i click on either one, lets say the my computer icon, a pop up of the my computer folder thing flashes for a split second then disappears, the computer freezes for about a second, shows only the desktop, then a few seconds later the icons start appearing on my desktop and my start taskbar comes back. The screen is back to normal with no lag, but the my computer pop up is no longer there. The same thing happens with internet explorer, but it just happens alot quicker.
Does anyone know what could possibly be the problem of this, and maybe how to fix it? Thank You in advance.

Did you do an anti-virus scan on your PC seems like a virus problem.

I am so puzzled with this problem I have. I have Windows xp: Service Pack 3, and when I open Windows Internet Explorer 8, It turns white and closes almost immediately after I open it, or i'll open it and it'll turn white and stay like that for almost 10 minutes straight and do nothing. I tried resetting it in control panel, and it didn't help at all. Why doesn't it----referring to my browser;Windows Internet Explorer, work?

If IE works properly when you start it without add-ons then it's possible that you could have an infection, but try these two MS fixits in this order first -

Fix Internet Explorer issues to make IE fast, safe and stable

Fix Internet Explorer add-on problems when IE hangs or freezes

Hello All!
For some reason today my computer likes to close the internet browsers on it's own. I use IE- the version used in 2004. When i've been playing games, doing research, anything the windows close- all of them. And then a window opens to say i've chosen to end the unresponsive program and asking me to send an error report. I never chose to close the program, it happens on its own. Do I have too many things running at once or any other ideas? Thank you much :0)

It's bizarre, but when I open my home page (SBCGlobal) or any other site on Internet Explorer, within seconds it goes to "http:///" in the address bar and says it can't find the page. I can only get back to each page by clicking the Back shortcut on my browser a half dozen times. ARG. What's going on??
I ran AdAware and Spyware Nuker and this window, at the moment, is staying up. What's up with IE? What should I download to take its place? My connection is working fine.

Just in the last week or so, when I click on a linked page off of a page, it will open the link for 5 seconds, then POOF! it closes and I am back to the original page.

This is happening on almost every site I go to. I'm thinking it might be a setting under Internet Options | Tools, but can't figure it out.

I've done massive searching for something similar, but can't find anything.

Any ideas? I don't have Macromedia Flash installed, and possibly some of those "other little programs" that like to load themselves....could it be something like that?

I can provide links if needed, but I don't have this log file everyone seems to be using.

I'm running XP PRO SP2....and I run AdAware SE, AVG and Microsoft AntiSpyware.....

Thanks from a new poster!

The error message saysInternet explorer has stopped workingA problem has caused internet explorer to close and so on.I just got this computer yesterday. There wasn't a problem with internet explorer until I installed firefox, then I unstalled it. I'm sure firefox isn't the problem. I installed other software as well. What should I do?p.s. I scanned the computer using ad aware, and a-squared and avast antivirus!

A:Internet Explorer Keeps Closing In Windows Vista!

Internet Explorer will stop working almost all the time cause a conflict with a Plugin or Active X...Go to "MSconfig".Click on Start > Type in "Start Search" MSconfig" (no quotes) and hit Enter...Go to the Startup tab and look for "OmniPage" and uncheck it...Go to internet options...Start > Control panel > Left side of window click on classic view > Internet options.In "General" tab, and look for browsing history and click on "delete..." Delete all...Go to "Programs" tab and click on "Manage Add-ons". Add-ons are active-x controls that change the way Internet Explorer is used. These can be toolbars, plug-ins, and other code that can interfere with the operation of IE. Select any suspicious add-on names from the name list and select disable to prevent the add-on code from opening when IE is opened.Finally go click the "Advanced" tab. Remove the checkmark from "Enable third-party browser extensions (requires restart)", editAlso unchek "Enable memory protection to help mitigate online attacks".Restart and the error should not come back.These errors are probably caused by browser extensions that were added through spyware or adware.Maybe a look in here, and posting your log will help if this didn't.Hope it helps Mav

Recently my McAfee anti virus software detected and deleted some trojans. Since then i have run and re-run the most recent versions McAfee, Ad-aware, and Spybot to make sure the problem was gone. None of these detected any problems but my windows explorer continues to crash unexpectedly and internet pages load extremely slow or not at all. I am running windows vista 32 bit and here is my HiJack file, thanks in advance for any help or advice you can give me.

When i open the Internet Explorer, it will open then immediately close. I was able to pinpoint the problem at my home page (www.google.com). I opened IE again, stopped it quickly from opening the home page and then entered another web page. It worked. Then i went back to the home page and it closed again. So whenever i enter the home page the program will shut itself. I also use Firefox as web browser and it doesnt do the same thing. Any help will be appreciated.

I am using ie7 and winxp on my computer and have recently had an issue with it. When I try to open explorer the window closes before it actually loads up. Bits of the taskbar keep turning grey as well like the old style windows.

I have tried removing all add ons and resetting internet settings but have had no luck. The connection is okay with other computers. On the problem computer the icons on the taskbar says it is there until I click on it when it disspears. I have tried downloading and running programmes like spybot on it (downloading them onto another disk and then transferring them onto the computer) but most seem to need to use the internet to run them. I cant use the web at all so solutions like installing ie6 dont seem possible either. I have ran hijack this here is the log. Any help would be most appreciated.

Been having trouble with a Windows XP Service Pack 3 machine using the internet, specifically Internet Explorer. IE8 opens but then shuts down immediately with an error message saying that Internet Explorer must be shut down. Was getting this yesterday on repeated attempts.For some reason tonight IE actually opened, I then tried to install Firefox (which had been blown out of the machine somehow) and get the error "Your current security settings do not allow this to be downloaded."Machine is also running much slower than normal. AVG is up to date and hasn't found any viruses, although a tracking cookie alert popped up tonight and I clicked Move To Vault. Firewall is enabled. Not sure if there is anti-spyware running on this, other than AVG.

Hello there,

My roomates Dell Dimension 2400 laptop , XP Pro, SP3,
Dual core Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.40 Ghz

Is having trouble with Internet Explorer dissapearing immediately and Chrome won't come open and Firefox is slow in opening:(

Joyces brother did something that made her laptop only start in Safe mode.

Not sure all he did but he removed Malwarebytes and did microsoft update.

The Comodo Internet suite Firewall/antivirus is getting an error and won't run

I reinstalled Malwarebytes and ran it and it found a pesky virus I have dealt with alot before called 'My Web Search'. it infected 3 registry files. Whe I tried to run system restore it wouldnt work its earlies date to restor to was 2066!! lol.

Anyway I got it to start normally by runing MsConfig and puting a checkmark by "Start Normally and load all drivers etc." Instead of the "Selected start up option.

It started normally and was fine except for Internet explorer and chrome not working.

I un-installed in add and remove the listed Internet Explorer 7 and 8 in hopes that it would revert to a good copy of Internet explorer 6 like I have done before.

When I open Internet explorer it opens to a plain white window and just hangs there. In task manager it shows in the processes tab but not in the applications tab:( And when you minimize it on the taskbar it has the little "e" icon but does not say Internet explorer next to it on the taskbar:(

A:Internet explorer disappears immediately:(

Hi All

I've got to the slitting wrists stage of this problem. I hope someone can help...

I've been getting the blue screen of death recently and upon checking my computer's error logs I found that it was a problem with my Radeon graphics card. I uninstalled and reinstalled the Radeon software but the audio went. I couldn't find the audio driver (long story) so I did a system restore which worked - everything was back to normal. Or so I thought.

Next morning I tried to open IE but upon opening it closed immediately. I've done a bit of research (ON THE INTERNET AT WORK!) and have done a HijackThis log.

It may be a coincidnece but the other day my screensaver changed - it's now a black screen which says Oxigenscr V5.00.0000. Maybe this is a virus. Thank you for your help in advance

A:Internet Explorer opens then closes immediately

3 more replies

In our office there is one site that we have to use Internet Explorer to access. This morning immediately upon start it crashed on two computers(I am unsure if they are related or not). So I have spent three hours trying to fix it and I am not stuck. It is IE 10 (or was) and it is Windows 7. Things I have tried:

2. Uninstalling then Reinstalling.
3. Doing an sfc scan to see if it was a missing system file.
4. Making sure all required and optional updates were installed.
5. One computer is used sparingly, there is nothing on it but the default programs but ran a virus scan anyway and it turned up nothing.
6. Reset all internet explorer settings.
7. Finally I installed the IE11 beta version and it does the exact same thing.

Having two different IE versions do the exact same thing makes me think it is a system issue and not an IE issue. Both Firefox and Chrome work with no issues.

Just wanted to add that it will start in safe mode with no problems

Just disabled DEP on IE

A:Internet Explorer immediately shuts down upon start

Maybe try running these tools: tool 1, tool 2.

If that doesnt help, I have a few more possible solutions. This is another one: Install IE 10 and make sure all Windows updates are installed (not just for IE, but for the OS).

If that doesnt work, tell me.

Hi everyone, New to the forum so thanks for the help ahead of time. Upon opening internet explorer it immediately closes and displays nothing. Also Internet options in control panel will not open at all. The windows firewall also tells me "For your security, some settings are controlled by group policy." This computer is not on a network and is a home computer. I was able to work around it by doing some registry work in which I removed the value on the firewall key. So that enabled me to turn the firewall back on. The service for windows firewall is now started with no errors and is set to automatic.

The Internet explorer problem is more important to me at the moment. I know the internet connection is active because firefox works perfectly. I scanned the computer with AVG and it found so many viruses and trojans it was rediculous. I also scanned the computer with webroot spysweeper and it found nothing but when I open IE it stops all sorts of things like drivecleaner for example.

Windows update updated my IE6 (working) to IE7. After this, when clicking the IE icon, the IE window would flash up and then close immediately. I then upgraded to IE8 and exactly the same problem. I have tried iexplore -extoff and reset to default in internet options. Still have the problem. Google Chrome and Mozilla work fine. My HijackThis log is attached:

I have worked on a friends laptop
windows 7

internet explorer opens and shows the outline of the dialogue box and then the page closes

I have done the following

Trying to re-install - message , version already on PC

Rebooted at various stages throughout
- Went to Turn Windows Features On and Off and un-clicked Internet 9
- Ran the MSFIX - Microsoft Fixit 50778.msi, finished OK
- Ran "Command" as admin - and tried this command

FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*9.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /norestart"

- After removing the updates , i was then allowed to install IE11 which took a while to fully install after the full installation and a reboot.
Exactly the same error occur

IE opens with just the outline of the PAGE and then timer shows for a while, then screen closes.

I have left my friend to create the recovery DVDs and then once created to do a system restore back to December. I just wanted to make sure that if there was a problem with restore, she had a recovery option.

She knows this problem has been on the pc for a while, and shes not sure if before or after the oldest restore point of 19/12/13

She has a full subscription to Norton 360 on the PC

My Internet Explorer on my laptop will open, but then immediately closes itself down.

It won't stay open, no matter what I do.

Tried to run the virus scan, which removed 2 problems, but that didn't work.

I wanted to update my Norton Antivirus to see if that would find and solve the issue but since the updates are web-based, and my I/E won't stay open, I can't do that either.

Any suggestions?

Hello everyone, im fairly new to this, so please bear with me.

Recently, ive been having trouble with my computer. It started one morning when i went to go check my email. My main browser is google chrome exe so naturally i go to click it. Which is when all this starts -_-. i double click on it, but the program doesnt open. I try to open it by left clicking and running as an admin but still no luck. I soon realize that this is the case for ALL of my programs except Internet explorer, which i find strange considering the similarities with the other browsers. Anyway, ive read previous similar problems on here, and i download Hijackthis. I have a log folder that i can post if needed. Also i see something when i try to open the program quicky enough but i cant make out what it is before it closes. There is also a suspicious search engine called searchqu.com406 that comes up as soon as i start internet explorer Keep in mind this doesnt happen in safe mode, and evrything works fine, just like the computer was regularly before. Ive tried multiple Malwarebytes scans, stinger, (which is still scanning after 25 mins) and AVG (which begins to scan, but then a command prompt comes up and stops it) all to no avail. Any help would greatly be appreciated Please and Thank You

my internet explorer keeps acting up. i open it and a few seconds later it goes white and the dialog box pop up stating
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution
is available. i've tried resetting it and a repair install and running with no add ons but it still does this.

A:Internet explorer 11 keeps closing

Turn Internet Explorer off and on

Follow these steps one by one:

Step 1: Search>Enter Windows features>click Settings>click Turn Windows features on or off

Step 2: Windows Features dialog box>clear the Internet Explorer 11 check box>click Yes in the dialog box that asks if you want to turn Internet Explorer 11 off

Step 3: Internet Explorer 11 check box>Turn Internet Explorer 11 back on>OK

Hope this will work.

Hi quietflip2
Close your browser window,run hjt in safe mode and fix these items.Any files/folders that I have highlighted will also need to be removed from your hard drive as well as from the log.

This is probably resolved with a simple internet options change, but I can't figure it out for the life of me.

If I visit certain sites by linking to them, Internet explorer just closes out completely. I can still get to those sites by copying the link, opening a new Internet explorer, and pasting the link in my address bar.

Sample link that closes IE for me:

http://www.sptimes.com/2004/11/19/Tampabay/Gunman_kills_two__sel.shtml

I can get to the above link by going through the sptimes website, but if I try to click a link someone put on their webpage for it it closes my internet explorer.

I'm using WindowsXP, IE 6.0, and I run ad-aware like twice a week. The problem has been around for a while, not sure what to do about it. Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi! Within the last week, whenever I use Internet Explorer for more than a few minutes, an hourglass suddenly appears for a few seconds followed by a remark saying that "Internet Exporer has encountered a problem and needs to close". I restart Internet Exporer and everthing seems OK for a few minutes and then the same thing happens again. I use Mcafee Viruscan and Microsoft Anti-spyware and neither of them has found anything. Any ideas why this is happening??????? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have no clue on why this is happening. Sorry about not knowing. I hope this doesn't offend anyone when I say IE sucks. I would just forget about IE and use Firefox which is a way better browser.

Hi. My computer (Win7 64x OS) is being weird :/. I opened up Internet Explorer, did my business and then when I went to close it it wouldn't close. When I clicked the X button it made that weird noise that is made when you try to do something that "isn't possible". I immediately pressed and held the Ctrl-Alt-Del keys (which obviously didn't work). I then went to my "techy" friends and they told me to use Alt-F4 and Ctrl-Shift-Esc which also didn't work. I then attempted to restart my computer via the start button.........no response. After the 30 seconds I waited I tried again.........no response. During this time I ran a full scan on Microsoft Security Essentials and it said I was clean. I'm not sure what to do now. I would REALLY appreciate some help.

Sincerely,
Space_Duck

A:Internet Explorer not Closing

Have you tried holding down the power button for a few seconds to force the computer to turn off? You may find the problem has resolved itself when you restart. Can you minimize the window and get to "Restore to a previous working configuration" and try that. In extremis you could pull the plug/battery and force closure.

Now as we all know contacting Microsoft is a waste of time. And Microsoft although sent this automatic problem report don't send an automatic HOW TO FIX THE PROBLEM. So is there anyone out there who can give me simple easy to follow advice please on what may be going wrong.
Thanks so very much...and Bill Gates if you are out there when will you create an online fix the problem system...something as simple as it fixes itself and doesnt require us to do anything.

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

There are a number of possible causes for your problem.

Viruses/malware etc could be responsible.

IE may have become corrupted in some way.

Lets check to make sure you dont have anything nasty lurking on your system. If your system checks out clean, then well see what else we can do.

Hi all,
I’m having an annoying problem with Iexplorer closing without warning. Sometimes a warning message pops up saying ‘Iexplorer must close. Sorry for any inconvenience’, but most the time IE just shuts down with no warning.
My fire wall (Virgin Media’s own) has been going crazy lately alerting me of files similar to wtP1uim3 that want to connect to the internet. I always choose ‘block’, but can’t guarantee that they’ve always been blocked as my Niece has been using it.
Below is my HJT file. And any help is appreciated…

A:Error When Closing Internet Explorer 7

12 more replies

Hi, I've got a problem with the internet explorer on my Windows 7 laptop.

Out of nowhere earlier today it started to close immediately after I had tried to reopen it (I'd accidently closed it off). Just before it happened though, my internet had tried to load a website I hadn't tried to open in one of my tabs (don't know what it was, it's not in my internet history anywhere) and I've had the problem ever since.

It's taken a lot of clicking the stop cross in the top bar just as I open it to get it working. Once I close it again, I know I've got the same problem again...it's so frustrating!

Now, I've been onto the windows website and have reset internet explorer like it says but it's still not working. It's also shrunk the size of the tab bars and the home page and favourites icons for some reason. So, any help would be great as I really need it on my laptop.

I'm not very clued up on tech either so you'll have to bear with me a bit on trying to get this fixed.

A:Internet Explorer keeps closing after opening...

Open IE. Hold the Control key and type zero (0). If it doesn't work, post back the version of IE you're using and what a virus scan indicated.

My problem is that I have IE 7 and firefox 3, and recently they stopped working properly. What exactly happens is that when you click one any of them to open, they will load for half a second then close, as if i hit the 'x' button, no messages, no warning. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling both programs but same problem.
This is the funny thing though, I ran a subscribed and paid version of webroot spy sweeper with anti-virus on my computer. It found trojans and other viruses, and I quickly deleted them. Then both Internet explorer and firefox were opening and quickly closing. I tried limewire and it worked fine with fast connection. later that night by miracle both IE and FF were working, no random closing, however Spy sweeper had a scheduled sweep and it did a thorough sweep of the computer. Now the net was still working, however as soon as i deleted the viruses, bpth firefox and internet explorer stuffed up. I ran anti malware, and still nothing happened, both firefox and internet explorer aren't working, and i really need help to fix this problem. Is there a program or application which can be downloaded, without sending me a virus which will remedy this?

I haven't noticed any other problems with the computer --- OTHER THAN I know it needs more memory (but this is an old problem, and IE just started acting weird today). Any idea what might be the problem with IE, and what can I do to fix it? Also, can I install a memory card in my laptop rather than opening the case? Hope I haven't confused the issue here. Thanks for any reply!

A:internet explorer closing automatically

Hi.,

Could be malware's doings. To be on the safe side,

After running through all the steps, best thing to do is have one of the HijackThis helpers take a look at a log.

Click on the "Unzip" button to install. It will by default install to the directory - C:\PROGRAM FILES\HIJACKTHIS\

Double click on HijackThis.exe to run the program.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Post the hijackthis.log file in the HijackThis Log Help forum. Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

IE 7 keeps closing each time I try to change pages or click on a link.

I have gone into the IE tools>Internet options>advanced tools>reset.

This has helped to the point that IE doesn't actually shut down but states it is unable to display page. If I click on refresh the page usually reloads. But I need to figure out why IE keeps shutting down. I removed all the toolbars I had when I did the reset.

I need help to cure this problem.

Recently, my internet explorer has been closing randomly. This isn't good since I use the computer for online testing here at school. My touchpad scroll function didn't work for a bit too, but I downloaded the new driver and it has started working again. I've also noticed the screen will flash, or if I'm watching a movie at full screen, it will suddenly go back to regular mode without me hitting anything. When I open task manager, iexplore.exe is running without Internet Explorer browser even running

I noticed that whenever it closes down, the task manager has an iexplore.exe running. There's often 2 iexplore.exe running at the same time in task manager. I did a search for all iexplore.exe on the computer and deleted all other than the one in ProgramFiles/Internet explorer.

A:Internet Explorer encountering problems and closing

It's always a good idea to have more than one browser. Firefox is solid. Are you using Internet Explorer 7? You may have already tried this but disable third party cookies in your privacy settings. This could be a spyware or trojan issue. What are you using for security?

I went to systems>performance>data execution prevention> turn on except those listed > IE. Still will not allow me to download :( help plz....

Run IE in No Add-ons Mode. Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) - If this fixes the issue, then go to Tools -> Manage Add-ons and enable the add-ons one by one to find which one was causing the problem.

I'm not sure how to fix your current problem, but I am here to tell you to be careful when downloading things from P2P networks. There is quite a bit of CRAP loaded on those networks, and it can screw up your computer quicker than you can say "Oh NO!"

I continue getting the following error message each time I close Internet Explorer.
The instruction at "0x01eb4213" referenced memory at "0x0171ad58". The memory could not be "read". Click on OK to terminate the program.

I've run MemTest without any problem being identified. Sometimes when I run sfc /scannow, the problem seems to go away for a little while. I'm running a Dell Inspiron 5100 laptop with Windows XP Home. Help!

A:Internet explorer closing (Hi Jack Log file)

Your problem doesn't look like it's related to spyware. Your log is clean. Lets try one more tool to make sure.

Unzip to its own folder and start the program:
Press 'Config'
Press 'Mark All'

UN-Check the 'NT-Services & NT-Kernel...' boxes only:
Press 'Ok'

Press 'Save' and select the location to save the log file (default is the same folder as the application)

Please find my DDS below, hopefully I did this correct. I am not a computer savvy person. I am in desperate need to get this computer unjacked prior to deployment. Any and all help would be appreciated.

When I open Internet Explorer and type something into the search, the results come up and then I get the Internet Explorer has stopped working pop up, then I cancel it and the page auto recovers the tab. Also I am unable to connect to my Army Knowledge Online or any other Military site that I perform work through or need to access.

I performed a scan and something about a 180 came up with about 14 other issues. Don't know what they mean.

Thanks for reading and possibly being the one to offer a fix to my computer.

A:Crazy pop-ups n random closing of internet explorer

Hi.Welcome

Before we start working with your log, you are running Hijack This from a temporary location.This needs to have its own folder.Please download HijackThis Self-installer
This is a complete installer that installs HijackThis on the computer to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.

Doubleclick Look2Me-Destroyer.exe to run it and put a check next to Run this program as a task.

You will receive a message saying Look2Me-Destroyer will close and re-open in approximately 10 seconds. Click OK. When Look2Me-Destroyer re-opens, click the Scan for L2M button, your desktop icons will disappear, this is normal.

Once it's done scanning, click the Remove L2M button. You will receive a Done Scanning message, click OK.

When completed, you will receive this message: Done removing infected files! Look2Me-Destroyer will now shutdown your computer, click OK. Your computer will then shutdown.

Restart your computer and please post the contents of C:\Look2Me-Destroyer.txt and a new HijackThis log.

Is there a way to automatically logoff/close internet explorer after a certain time delay, or do you have to close it manually with a mouse click each and every session?

we are running 6.0 and 7.0 on different computers and I need a way to automatically close the session so that if somebody forgets to end the session, someone else can't come up to it and have it already running.

This is for a proprietary application in a business, meaning we use internet explorer to provide building controls and if one of the operators forgets to close the browser any other person can sit at the PC and take control of the building systems. The application we are using requires a signon (login) when the browser is launched so that is secure, it's just the automatic closing of the session that we can't seem to figure out.

thanks.

Hi. I keep getting this error message whenever I try to visit a site using internet explorer by itself (it works through AOL )
this operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect

After the above message it closes, I have restarted several times and still having the same problem. I also restored my Internet Explorer setting and I still have the problem.

When I try to access internet explorer option through the TOOLS tab I get the below message.
Also, when I try to access system admin services via control panel I get an error message and it closes out before really starting.

Hi. I'm new here... Anyway, whenever I close a folder (i.e. My Computer, My Documents, Recycle Bin, any folder I've made, etc...) the computer hangs for like 3 seconds then closes the folder then opens an Internet Explorer Window of about:blank. This takes a long time especially since opening folders is what I do a lot. Anyone have any ideas of what to do. I've run McAfee Anti-virus and Spybot Search and Destroy but the problem still persists.

I have been experiencing a slow reaction from IE when I try to close it. (previously when i type something, say in google search, the key strokes also used to get delayed. I ran AVG and it showed three malware threats and removed them. The key stokes now seem to go ok, but the delayed IE close persists. After I click the x on IE, it still waits for a while before closing. (and it happens on every webpage). I thought you guys can please take a look at my Hijackthislog and let me know if I should get rid of any items.There seem to be some unnecessary toolbars etc and may be some other stuff that probably slows my computer in general (not only the key stoke issue). If you could please let me know how to get rid of them as well, even though it is not a threat, I will appreciate it.

Thanks

I'm running Windows XP SP3 and Internet Explorer 8. For some reason IE8 has started having a problem of not closing properly. IF I have multiple tabs open and I try to close IE8, it asks if I want to close all tabs, but when I click on close all tabs it just sits there doing nothing. If I then try to close IE8 again, I just get an hour glass symbol. The only way I can close IE8 is open task manager and shut down the processes for each tab. If I'm on IE8 without having any tabs open, I can close IE8, but not reopen it from the desktop without going to task manager and shutting down the IE8 process. I can however reopen IE8 without shutting down the process, if I use the IE8 quick launch button on the task bar, but I still have the IE8 closing problem. By the way, while I'm in the middle of this IE8 closing problem (before I shut it down in task manager), I can't open anything else (my computer,etc.,etc.) until I shut down the IE8 process. Neither Norton Internet Security or MalwareBytes has detected any problems. Does anyone know how to fix this problem, it is getting pretty annoying. Thanks in advance.
