Greetings,

What should I do in order to prevent a web site or web page from closing after trying to access another? For instance, whenever I click on a link within an email or another web site, the previous web site or web page disappears. In other words, I am only able to access one web site at a time.
This problem came up when my computer was invaded and hijacked by spyware which I was able to get rid of. However, I kept encountering the above mentioned problem.
I would appreciate any assistance to resolve the problem. Thank you in advance.

What browser are you using when this occurs?

If it is IE, click "tools", then click the "advanced tab",
then untic “reuse windows for launching shortcuts”

Yes, I am using IE. And I just did what you suggested but I'm still experiencing the same problem. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

I use 'Firefox', which has tabbed browsing facilities. This means that links are opened with a new tab, which appears at the top of the page. You can have as many of these as you wish, and toggle between them. I mention it because I have heard that the new IE 7 has this option. It is currently 'beta' but why not download it and try it.

The current BETA of IE7 is reported to be somewhat buggy. A BETA publish is for public TESTING, and should not be used for "mission-critical" assignments.

Use Firefox (which, in my opinion is superior except for Microsoft Updates and online scans), or repair IE.
