    I HAVE SOMETHING WEIRD GOING ON.  INTERNET EXPLORER 7 HAS A VIRUS OR SOMETHING.  IT KEEPS OPENING MULTIPLE WINDOWS.  THE WINDOWS SECURITY ALERT ICON SAYS AUTOMATIC UPDATES ARE TURNED OFF.  IT WON'T LET ME TURN THEM ON AND SAYS TO GO TO CONTROL PANEL AND DO IT THERE.  THEY ARE ON ACCORDING TO THE CONTROL PANEL.  ALSO,MY COOKIES SECURITY KEEPS GETTING RESET TO "ALLOW ALL COOKIES" AFTER I HAVE SET IT TO TIGHTER SECURITY. I HAVE RUN ADAWARE AND ONECARE BUT THEY DON'T CLEAR UP THE PROBLEM.  I LOADED DEFENDER BUT IT TRIES TO UPDATE AND CAN'T BECAUSE MY WINDOWS AUTOMATIC UPDATES ARE TURNED OFF.  BUT I CAN'T TURN THEM ON.  HELP!  I'VE SPEND 3 DAYS DEALING WITH THIS AND IT'S FRUSTRATING.
