    My browser keeps replicating itself. I have checked the 'install on demand IE" and 'install on demand (other)' command in IE but that makes no difference. I have installed both sypbot and ad-ware and ran them both. The problem continues.

    First.
    Start | Settings | Control Panel | Internet Options | Advanced tab |
    Make sure both of these are NOT checked.

     Enable Install On Demand (Internet Explorer)
    [[Specifies to automatically download and install Internet Explorer
    components if a Web page needs them in order to display the page properly or
    perform a particular task.]]
     Enable Install On Demand (Other)
    [[Specifies to automatically download and install Web components if a Web
    page needs them in order to display the page properly or perform a
    particular task.]]

    Apply | OK

    It is known as Scumware. Visit these sites. 1, 2, 3 and 4 are really good.
    Download, install, run, update and run again; one or all. They are all
    good, FREE utilities.
