    So when you restart your computer it's opening multiple instances of Internet Explorer? Can they be closed out of properly? I might also re-run a sweep for spyware/malware/viruses since that could be one cause of decreased speeds (sending enough packets of information off of your machine that it starts to feel like your internet connection is being throttled) and these windows opening up on their own. I imagine you have also tried doing the whole unplugging and restarting your modem and/or router, but it bears repeating to try it out x-). Does it seem like anything else is out of place with your machine or is it just related to internet usage?

    when in task manager, they can not be closed out or end tasked. there is no visual windows open. its like they are running in the background and cannot be opened or closed.

    ooooooooo that's a bizaare one... Yeah definitely try sweeping for any sort of malware on your computer, 'cause I've never seen any kind of browser program do that before unless it was under the influence of "dark powers."

    first of all stop using IE
    go into msconfig through your run command
    be sure under your "startup tab" ONLY your essential programs are running. antivirus, and such
    IF and ONLY if you know what your doing go through the services tab and close unnecessary programs

    again, IF you do not know what your doing in there DO NOT touch anything. perioud.

    second of all no available web browser is worth using until it is properly configured
    this is a start in the right direction. not a full walk through by any means
    this next link is firefox web browser

    Mozilla Firefox Web Browser ? Download Firefox in your language ? mozilla.org

    these following links are addons

    if your a student or do a ton of typing online also consider lazarus

    My boy had something similar to this on his laptop. each time he opened a page multiple instances of IE would open.

    I put google browser on for now to get around it as fixing it will be a pain due to him having win8 and I h8 win8.

    As the others have said... Malwarebytes maybe AVG too to see what they find.

    I recommend Malware Bytes AND Spyware Search & Destroy. Both have a free version, though I think Malwarebytes is free for only a month.
    Spybot catches TONS of spyware/malware that Malwarebytes misses so use them both!
    I had a similar problem. Internet opened itself up or when I opened it myself it was hijacked and would send me to a site that looked like a safe browser or some random internet site that was clearly caused by malware.

    Check out your explorer settings and delete any add on's that you don't know what they are including search engines and toolbar add ons.

    Find them as well in your add/remove programs area under "Computer". A lot of these malware add on's get attached to something completely legit that you download by accident by not "opting out" of having them installed (think "quick install" or "custom" where the normally quick version automatically installs additional stuff you didn't ask for when downloading something from CNET for instance. CNET has managed to get me to accidentally download malware along with a legit program. I have no idea why they let this happen.

    Once in "add/remove programs" locate items you did not install yourself or items you aren't sure what they are, check them out as being safe or bad online, then delete them if it proves to be malware or spyware.
