Hi folks,

I have a strange thing happening with my IE on winXP. I've run
ad-aware and a full virus scan which has turned up nothing.

You can see a screen shot here:


What happens is that a IE window spawns of *its own accord.* When it
happens, I don't know, but in this case nothing was running. I come
back and there it is. You cannot navigate to the window at all, there
is no window per se. The window title seems to be the "==" part. I
can easily alt-F4 and close it or close it in the task window.

It does NOT show up when you alt-tab through open apps. 

Anyone have an idea how I can find out/remove this?
