Internet Explorer / IE >> about:blank page and microsoft bar appears on left hand part of sc

whenever I open a new web page, a blank window of about:blank comes up and a
new screen on the left of the web page opens as well. How do I get rid of
this? Its irritating, and I don't remember changing anything to do this, so
I don't know how to fix it. Thanks.

Internet Explorer / IE >> about:blank page and microsoft bar appears on left hand part of sc I'm not sure what you're discribing here. When you open a web page are you
opening up a shortcut and when it opens you get an ie7 windows and possibly
an older ie6 window with a blank? We've seen that before. Or are you saying
you open up ie and one pops up with your home page and another opens up with
a blank. Seen that too. Can you give a little more. tks

Do a thorough check for malware, following all of the steps at one of these

So How Did I Get Infected Anyway?
For quite a few people it's by installing Messenger Plus, whose ads for
malware don't identify the malware as such and try to convince you that you
owe it to the author. See also:

Don't ever do a "default" install of anything. Always choose Custom and see
what else is being carried along. Don't install any extras you're not sure
of.
