internet window closes - system wont restore

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

hi,

i am running windows XP home edition and using internet explorer everytime i
go onto the interenet and a new window pops up as part of the web address, i
go to close this but loose the whole lot of internet pages that i was using.
this is very annoying as i have to start from the beginning again and reload
the website that i was on. i have searched for spy/adware but have not found
any.

another problem that i have is the tabs in the display properties are not
being shown and i am unable to get to the different parts of the properties,
the only way i am able to do it is is use the keyboard.

there are so many problems on the computer i thought i would restore the Pc
back to the orignial settings, so i inserted the restore CD and floppy and
restarted the PC as it said, but when i do this nothing happens and i am
unable to restore the Pc is there any other ways i can restore the Pc or get
the CD to work.

please help me to solve these problems
thanking you in advance.

    Since you didn't specify what exactly you did to search for malware,
    follow these instructions systematically, doing everything with updated
    tools in Safe Mode:

    Do that before you use the Restore CD. If you need to use the Restore
    CD, make sure your computer is set to boot from the CD drive (not the
    floppy drive). You would do this from within your BIOS. Refer to the
    manual that came with your computer or go to the computer mftr.'s tech
    support site for your specific model machine for instructions how to
    use their Restore CD if you no longer have the manual.
