IE is bizarre

Riddle me this:

I open a link from an email (in this case, https://payment.retailchoice.com/Recruitment/SelfService/JobPostIntro.aspx ). The page opens in IE, but my favorites have all disappeared and the search toolbar is set to Live (I set it to Google). I can’t get to Sharepoint.

I open IE from my taskbar. It opens to the RBI homepage. My favorites are there and my search is set to Google. Now I can get to Sharepoint.

Is there a gremlin living in this machine or what? I can’t figure out how it’s picking up both the default and “my” profile in IE.

you have likely been infected with a malicious spyware. never open an attachment or link from some one you don't know.

Try again?
Heh. Well, it was sent to me from work, at work, by a person I know, it's a link to a site my company owns, I'm pretty sure I wasn't infected with anything. We've also got batshit crazy security on our machines, so I don't think I could FORCE a virus on my machine.

I'll follow up with the security guys if I can't come up with something better to explain this crap. I figured it was just some kind of freaky IE 7 problem, but who knows! It's entirely possible that someone hacked our servers.
