Ok so my computer is acting up. I'm usually pretty good at getting rid of infected files but I can't seem to figure this one out.
Sometimes when I turn on my computer it loads all my stuff and suddenly Internet Explorer starts opening new windows over and over and over. I tried terminating the process but that didn't work.
I scanned my computer with AVG and Malwarebytes and they found some files and I got rid of them (Now I'm able to use Mozilla Firefox again) but the IE problem still occurs sometimes.
I'm trying really hard to not have to reformat but I think I may have to due to another issue that happens every time I turn on my computer but that's unrelated to this major problem.
I'm on Windows XP by the way.

Disable windows IE under "Turn windows features on or of"
Then re-boot and enable again.
