popping up multiple ie7 windows when you close frozen browser

My computer will pop up an unlimited amount of ie7 browser windows when the
current one freezes. I checked my computer for viruses with my antivirus
internet software. I downloaded updates for windows and malware checking
software for ie7. Nothing was found. The only way to stop the pop ups is to
press the power button. This has happened multiple times. I cannot figure
out and my antivirus company thinks it IS a virus that is a slow-moving virus
that isn't caught by software. Is this a virus? If not, how can I fix it?
I cannot find anyone with this same problem. I just bought this computer
last year. It's been doing it since I bought it.

One of your Addon toolbars has its popup blocker turned on. Turn it off (IE
has one built-in) or uninstall it.

Regards.

There is a very good chance that you are seeing the affects of a hijackware
infection.

1. See if you can download/run the MSRT manually:

NB: Run the FULL scan, not the QUICK scan!

2. WinXP ONLY!! => Run the Windows Live Safety Center's 'Protection' scan
(only!) in Safe Mode with Networking, if need be:

3. Run a /thorough/ check for hijackware, including posting the requested
logs in an appropriate forum, not here.

If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA) computer repair shop.
