Well my Internet Explorer is kinda behaving crazy.
I have IE5.5.The problem I have is that the settings seem to change on its own.The checkbox for "Show pictures" in the advanced properties seem to uncheck itself at random.But the pictures are not disabled and I can still view them with IE.
One other incident was when the content advisor got enabled itself right in the middle of browsing.I had already opened some pages which worked fine and for the next page I opened I got a warning that no sites have been defined in the content advisor and so I cannot view this page.When I viewed the properties the content advisor was enabled.To make matters worse I seem to have lost the password.Luckily for me when I closed all IE windows and reopened it, the content advisor was disabled and everything was back to normal.This has happened only once.
Well I decided to reinstall IE and I noticed some strange things happening in the registry.After reinstalling IE and before connecting to the www the registry entries for Advanced options was like this
.I connected to the net, viewed some pages and sure enough the checkbox for "Show pictures" got unchecked itself.When I opened the registry
the value for text had changed from "Show pictures" to "Crash your IE" !!!
Well what is happening, can anyone tell me if this is a virus or bug in IE or why is this happening.Any kind of help is greatly appreciated.
