next time you click chck on the status bar on the bottom to see if there is a little disk icon. that means you're downloading something and it will open within IE. what tpes of files are you trying to download?

try to delete the temp internet files, delete the cookies and clear teh history... if this does not burn try to check for any spywares... coolwebshredder is not a bad idea.... or may be adware 6.0 from lavasoft..!
