Today I clicked on Internet Explorer and tried a Google Search. I only did one left-click of my mouse each time. Multple windows appeared and continued to propagate non-stop, until I closed all windows. Does anyone know what could be causing that? I know that I could do a restore to yesterday and the problem would probably go away, but I would like to know the cause of it.

Could be a virus, or mal-ware causing it. Go to the options, Advanced tab and reset IE to defaults, and also delete the caches and cookies and see what happens. Also scan the system with a virus/malware removal.

I was trying to check the latest description of AVG through a Google search, but multiple windows kept popping up after I clicked on a particular link.

I ran Malwarebytes from my flashdrive and my AV quarantined it as a virus. I then disabled my AV and downloaded Malwarebytes to my hard drive and ran it. No malware was found. I checked it with several other antimalware programs and came up with the same result.

I then restored my hard drive to its two-day prior configuration and now my Win7 system works fine. At the time the problem occurred, I was simultaneously running the Google Chrome browser from my flashdrive and IE9 and GreenBrowser (which uses Internet Explorer as a proxy) from my hard drive. Could that have caused a conflict?

Anyway, thanks everyone for your input. I have since checked my system with several remote AV scanners and no viruses were found. There were about 1,200 junk and cache files found by A1 Cleaner that I deleted, which CCleaner did not find.
