IE jumps to another location after 6 clicks
as i am using IE and clicking on differnet items while surfing the web, IE
will jump to another location (on the same pg im viewing) after i have
clicked/selected 6 times. In other words, after the 6th click, the cursor
will jump about two inches above what i had intended to select. If the 6th
click lands on a field that is "clickable", it will go to that "clickable"
site. If it lands on a zone that is not "clickable", i simply remain on the
pg i am viewing. I have downloaded all current IE updates and am very
confused. Any ideas out there? If you can help, thank you very much

Re: IE jumps to another location after 6 clicks
Hi,
Which version of Windows? (Including SP level- SP1,SP2,etc.)
Which version of Internet Explorer?
What security, antivirus, antispyware programs are running?

Regardless of answers to those questions, this may be a malware problem-
adware, spyware, hijacker, trojan, etc.
See these sites for help:
