    This is happening mainly with IE but its happening with Chrome and Firefox also. You can be browsing the web for as little as 30 seconds and then it just keeps opening new windows...and i do mean alot. After closing around 40 windows and ending all processes / resetting all internet explorer settings clearing user settings, re-installing making sure everything updated, running malware removal, registry clean ups, windows repair tools, fixing host and DNS settings...still getting the same problem. Any ideas?

    Cheers

    (just too add, there is an o2 connection manager that bypasses the usual windows one, could this be an issue?)

    Cara update your network drivers.

    If the error persists, reformat your machine.

    Yeah just going to re-load the machine, tried everything here, not managed to find anything else about it either thanks for the help though.

    Also removed the o2 connection manager and made windows connection manager default again but that didn't change the problem.

    Re-load it is haha.
