... alongside the ones I open up on Internext Explorer? I only notice they're there when I come to close down the pages I am using. It's almost as though I'm opening up a blank IE screen for every 'real' page I intend to open. Any ideas what could be happening, IT-clever people out there?
Not sure why that would be off hand. There are some programs that mess with Internet Explorer to open advert pages behind. If it's one of them it's not working as it meant to, but I suppose it's possible.
