HI, I have xpsp2, all updates, McAfee, numerous scans, all clean. problem = when I click a link such as in a post on this site or even in an email I can go to that link, it opens in a new window, original window closes. The only way to go back is to close window, reopen browser, back to original site, or click fav, if it was a site in my faves. any ideas? thanks.

In IE go to Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab and put a check mark in Re-use window for launching shortcut. While your in there make sure both instances of install on demand are unchecked for seurity reasons.

Thanks Leurgy, I suspected the same, my settings are correct, "reuse windows" disable "install on demand" same results. I'm advised at Langa's to reinstall IE, (regsvr32 actprxy.dll) over my head, any tips?

Can you post a link to that.

Another solution would be to reinstall IE by downloading the full program and running it. Its 24 MB so its not dialup friendly. If you have a CD from an ISP its usually on those so you could run it from there.

That tip at Langa's just allows you to reregister two .dll files that are used by IE. No big deal to do that. Might even work. But like he says the easiest fix is to reinstall.
