    Multiple Internet Explorer windows

    I have a problem with multiple internet explorer windows opening by themselves. Nothing stops them short of taking out the battery on my laptop. Is anyone else having this issue?

    I quite often have the same problem on my Dell desktop. I think it's a bug in IE itself.
