When I open my explorer browser the window pops up, but if I click on a link to open another window for a different site the new site comes up on the same window. I can't have two explorer windows open at the same time my system won't let me. How can I fix this?

In IE, Click Tools>Internet Options>Advanced Tab.
Make sure "Reuse Windows for Launching Shortcuts" is selected. :thumbsup:

Do you want the link to open a new window leaving the original as well?
If so, untic "Reuse Windows for Launching Shortcuts"

I do want to leave the original window open while the new window is opened as well, and I have tried using the "Reuse Windows for Launching Shortcuts" checked and unchecked, but neither works. I recently had to do a clean sweep of my computer due to infections and it never did this before then. Are there any other possible solutions?

It works the other way around.
Selecting "Reuse Windows for Launching Shortcuts" does leave the original window open. :thumbsup:

Aha! :flowers:
Most likely there are missing or damaged reg entries.
See the article below. Start by re-registering all the dll's listed.
You should see a "succeeded" message after each.
If you don't, the .dll file itself is either missing or damaged.

You cannot open a new Internet Explorer window or nothing occurs after you click a link
