I went to:
Clicked printable view. Then as it came up I changed my mind and closed it
or something and I kept getting new windows of the same article popping up
faster than I could close them. I could not stop it. I was hopeless.
Something took control of my computer. If I left it I would have a million
windows open of the same article. I was tempted for a moment for
entertainment to just leave it and watch my computer melt down. I thought
better of it a second later and forced a shut down. I went to the web site
after reboot and everything worked fine.
What happened? What did I do? What do I do to prevent this from happening
again? What do I do if it happens again?
I am using the latest version of IE7. I have heard bad stuff on IE8 is the
only reason I have not upgraded.
