Help needed: Internet explorer starts by itself


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am running Vista Ultimate. Everything was fine till yesterday. The system now starts internet explorer by itself and open random pages such as this one: https://w2k31.canada.fleet.ford.com/downloa...20090902_EN.pdf.

I read instructions on various forums. Run Norton 360 which did nothing. Ran Super AntiSpyware which caught some tracking cookies. Fortunately it doesn't find any in the registry and memory items anymore but it finds them in the files items every time. I ran HJT, which gave the following log.... the problem of opening ie by itself persists. Any help will be really appreciated:

Thanks
