    YES!  The exact same thing is happening to me.  Everytime I type a URL in or launch a bookmark another browser window (whatever the default browser is) opens.  If I click a hyperlink, no problem. 

    I went back to a restore point and everything was fine.  Then it started happening again.  Did a scan with AdAware and nothing.  I'm thinking that it started again after an automatic update from MS.

    and it's free, and it's in Dutch, English and German, u should really try this, it clears ALL crap from your PC Wink

    You may not have any spyware at all, but may have a fully patched XP system. The same thing was happening to me last week (all links in IE opening in FF) and was driving me crazy...turns out there was a problem with a Windows hotfix (if you've previously installed IE7...). See here:

    Hope that helps,
