    I have an occasional problem that may not have anything to do with the site, though it only occurs when I'm on LPSG.
    Sometimes, I will attempt to open a J-PEG, and my screen will suddenly show browser after browser opening up. (Is 'browser' the word I want? I'm really not very computer literate ... must fix that.)
    When this first happened, I would try to close them down, one at a time, but it's hopeless. You can't begin to keep up.
    All you can do is shut off your computer with the shut off button. (Sometimes this has cost me data in open files, I might add.)
    Any ideas about what's causing this? Is it the site? My software? Hardware?

    You sure it's a jpeg? I know some mpeg files can embed automatically launching links, typically taking you to their porn site. Is this what it's doing? There was a "jpeg virus" not too long ago, but I forgot what it's traits were. There was a big patch on both the Mac and PC side for it, is all I remember. It's not good, whatever is causing it, so I would check your virus/spyware software. Make sure it's up-to-date.

    novice has it right. If the jpeg is from a porn site, it very well could be "spring-loaded" with browser-spam.

    Sometimes you can "fix" the problem, when it occurs, by using ctrl-alt-del on PC or alt-cmd-esc on Mac, then ending your browser program.

    The last time, it was a jpeg from this site.
    But maybe it's happened in several different ways and I need to pay more attention. I'm going to do that.
    But thanks, both of you, for your suggestions.

    My pleasure. Now, do you have any other problems rising up that I can help you with?

    When it's that bad press ctrl/alt/delete then select the logoff button. If you think it's really bad select shutdown. The logoff/shutdown routine will block new windows from starting and allow you to escape. It also will write the cache to disk (or at least try to :biggrin1:).

    That would be odd behavior from a simple jpg file. If the link actually opens another html page, anything could happen. Do we have a known example from here which does this?

    Or you could try another browser, Rubi. I have no hijack problems with Opera or Firefox. I only keep Explorer on my desktop for my grandkids to access MySpace.

    Also, using a good firewall and a virus shield could be very helpful.

    Odd indeed but there is a documented fix to I.E. and/or Windows pertaining to a JPEG/JIFF "hack" similar to what Senor encountered. It was specific to I.E. browsers. Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox, and Opera were spared.
