    Please do this
    (Some members say they have already tried this in a reply; but later I find it has not been done!)
    The following not only resets all Internet Explorer's settings, but also removes all temp files, all extensions are disabled (toolbars, browser extensions, and Browser Helper Objects), and activeX controls are restored.


    How to use Reset Internet Explorer Settings (RIES)

    To use RIES in Internet Explorer 7, follow these steps:

    1. Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options.
    2. On the Advanced tab, click Reset.
    3. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
    4. When Internet Explorer 7 finishes restoring the default settings, click Close, and then click OK two times.
    5. Close Internet Explorer 7. The changes take effect the next time that you open Internet Explorer 7.

    Note for users who cannot start Internet Explorer 7 for some reason, use RIES from Internet Options in Control Panel.

    that didn't work. I even had 5 SEPERATE windows open and went back to the first one. I did the same thing to see if the other windows would stay open but when the first one closed, the other 5 did automatically close also.

    Are you using tabs on IE7 or did your launch IE 5 times? Please give us some computer specs to include how much RAM you have.
