Empty tab in IE 9


New Member
Hi all,

When I click on a link in a web page I get an empty tab. Not an about.blank but empty (see attached pic).

This doesn't happen every time, but becoming more ofter and annoying.

I'm running:
Win 7 Ultimate (updated)
Norton AV 2012 (updated and full scan in safe mode...found nothing)

Any ideas?

Thanks, Dave

Yes....malware, spyware and trojans....make sure system if free from infection. Next clear the browser cache and see if problem persists.

Thanks for the prompt response bassfisher.

I followed your thinking and downloaded and installed Malwarebytes.

Ran full scan twice...no joy...still happening
