    Hello,

    browsing...it doesn't deliver what it promises-- EASE OF BROWSING... instead
    itmakes life difficult...every now and then i find my system hangs...even
    other applications doesnt open, but if i close IE7 , everything works
    fine...with lots of IEXPLORE process (duplicate ones)...i had to exercise of
    finding which process is duplicate and killing the same then system comes to
    normalcy... i'm really fed up with IE7...repenting my decision of upgrading
    to IE7....any ways to get rid of this monster please ? i was happy with
    IE6... now trying Safari...though it is in real public beta version, it
    doesn't crash me at all for the last few weeks ....
    Please provide me help....

    So How Did I Get Infected Anyway?
    For quite a few people it's by installing Messenger Plus, whose ads for
    malware don't identify the malware as such and try to convince you that you
    owe it to the author. See also:

    Don't ever do a "default" install of anything. Always choose Custom and see
    what else is being carried along. Don't install any extras you're not sure
    of.
