    Was not sure really where to put this so I stuck it here. I am all of a sudden having a problem with Internet Explorer. I will not let me use the Open in New Window function. When I try to do that nothing happens. Also if I click a link that opens a new window to go to a different website, the same problem. Just wondering if anyone might have an idea about what might be causing this. I was using a ad blocker program but have uninstalled it with the same result.

    No, don't use Opera =) and don't even give thought to Netscape.

    Don't know about this one:
    Go to tools\internet options\advanced & see if 'reuse windows for launching shortcuts' is ticked.

    Also try this to repair IE
    Start/Run/regsvr32 urlmon.dll

    I got there fine, just copied the shortcut. I tried the registry fix but still am having the same problem. I really have no idea what the deal is.

    This is really a pain in the rear. I can not even download updates for windows update. I guess it is because the other window pops up but of course mine arent popping up.
