    About once a day I will be switching from one page to another when all of a
    sudden after a slight pause a new IE browser window will open and then
    another and another...until they finally stop at about 70. I can't close
    them as they will just continue to pile up more, I finally have to restart.

    I wondered if it could have anything to do with needing more RAM? I know
    that I have the minimum that MSN needs to run.

    Thanks for any insight...sorry if this has been asked before, I couldn't
    find it in searching the files.

    You probably have a malware infection.

    So How Did I Get Infected Anyway?

    It sounds like your machine is infected with spyware. The page below details
    many fine products that might be able to help you. I personally prefer
    Ad-Aware and SpySweeper.
