    I've been experiencing this problem recently; though, it's not just for this forum, but for every website I go to and open it up as a new tab. Strange. Sometimes when I click the middle button on the mouse, it will open up one tab only, like it should, and other times it will open up five to seven of the same page.

    You'd have to ask TotalAaron, he probably remember how he made it stop. All the tip I can give you is to try to restart your computer :p

    Removing it might not be that simple though. When installing things, there's often a little check-box that they don't want you to notice, that says "Make Mcafee my browser homepage and #1 search engine". If you don't notice it, and manage to install without un-checking the box, like I believe I have, you might never be able to remove it unless you reinstall your Windows or whatever you use. I tried everything, and eventually gave up and moved the task to remove it over to my friend and my brother, who are both computer geniuses. But to no avail, the search-engine/homepage thing wouldn't go away despite their efforts. I think I have two or three of those overlapping each other now in my browser, and I just try to ignore it. I hate the people who made their search-engines like this on purpose, almost like a virus. I want to send them discriminating hate-letters with all kinds of fuzzle-words. :mad:

    *shivers* Mcafee....

    Well, I'll try a new installation of my internet browser to see if it works.
