After i shut a window in internet explorer it opens again. i can't get it to go away

if i have multiple tabs open and i shut one, it opens back up to the same page as before.
it does it a few times before it goes away

if i have one tab open and i close the whole internet explorer page, the whole thing opens again and wont stop for a while.

i ASSUME its a virus of some sort?? the thing is, its my moms computer so i probably cant download any virus things, or she gets mad (she is computer illiterate so when i try to help her with all this she thinks IM the one putting the virus's on -___-)

jw if anyone has had a virus like this and what you did to get rid of it
