IE7 says close tabs when I don't want to

    Hi all,

    Just wondering if anyone else is having this problem? I am currently using
    Vista Ultimate and have had this issue with XP pro as well.

    For some reason, sometimes when I open a new tab in IE7 I get the window
    that displays close tabs when I haven't even clicked on close IE red X. This
    obviously results with me needing to fully close IE7 and going back to the
    site I was visiting.

    I did a brief check on this forum and could not find anything relevant. Has
    anyone else experienced this? Is it possibly spyware that is causing this

    I run Windows Defender, Ad Aware pro with real time ad-watch enabled and
    spybot search and destroy on a regular basis. I clear my cache regularly as
    well and when I find anything with the spyware scanner it is always only
    negligible objects and I always delete them. Currently running Live One Care
    trial for 120 days as well.

    I have gone into the addons and everything appears to be legit. I disabled
    anything that looked out of place and this problem is still occuring.

    Is this a known issue? Is there some kind of fix?

    Used the "no add-ons mode" a few days ago and still have the problem. Could
    be a bug or spyware causing the issue.
