    Unstable and Jitter

    Has anyone come across the following:
    I am running Win 7 on an current HP notebook plenty of RAM etc, while using IE9, and most recently while reading a windowssecret post I attempted to open/download a zip file that was an attachment. When I did IE9 became unstable and jittery, it began a continuous cycle of opening additional tabs...trying to close down IE9 via the Task Manager was useless...I had to close all word excel files and manually restart....this is the third time this has occurred.

    Any suggestions?? Windows updates are current.

    Have you run scans with AV/AM apps. I would suggest MalwareBytes Antimalware and Spybot Search and Destroy

    Hi Ted,

    I religously update and run AVG 2012 and Spybot S&D, the jitter conditions appear rather infrequently, but whrn they do the only solution is an orderly shut down and re-start.....although a vast improvement of Vista (and IE9)....it is not perfect. Funny as long as IE9 been released there are still some large company sites that seem to run better on the current version of Firefox than IE 9...

    Thanks for your assistance,
    Marty

    Perhaps you have an archive manager program installed which could be causing this when you attempt to open a zip file?

    Still sounds like malware. I would also run Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware.
