Multiple processes open when I double click IE7 shortcut

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Johnny Outdoors, Dec 25, 2006.

  1. When I double click my IE7 on the desktop, the computer starts to access the
    web, ( I am running Direcway satellite)but no page opens up.It just shows
    the desktop.
    If I double click it again it opens the home page,but the computer slows way
    down.
    If I have the task manager open, I can see the computer opens 3-5 Iexplorer
    processes at the same time. This also happens when I first try to get online
    without the home page opening.
    How can I stop multiple processes from opening at the same time if I only
    click the shorcut once? (only since IE7 update.)
    Any help would be great.

    Hi JO:

    If I were you my first step would be to check for malware.

    If you uninstall IE7 (which automatically returns you to IE6), does this
    behavior persist?
