Yesterday morning, Safari unexpectedly begain opening multiple tabs without a prompt after I accepted the latest Java update.  This slows my Mac to a crawl and I am wondering if I can correct this myself, or have I picked up a virus?  I am running the latest version of Lion and my Mac is only a couple of years old.  Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Hi TAM...

     

    More likely a cache issue.

     

    Quit Safari.

     

    Go to ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari/Cache.db

     

    Move the Cache.db file to the Trash.

     

    Relaunch Safari.

     

    Disabling the Lion "resume" feature will help also since it "caches" web page content.

     

    Open System Preferences > General

     

    Deselect Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps.

     

     

    ~ (Tilde) character represents the Home folder.

     

    For Lion:   To find the Home folder in OS X Lion, open the Finder, hold the Option key, and choose Go > Library

    Thank you so much for the help!  How can I prevent Safari from opening up all of these pages when I turn my Mac on.  It takes about 15-25 min for Safari to cycle through all of those pages before anything else can function correctly.  Thanks again!!!
