Internet Explorer opens new window and sends all new page requests to that window

  1. i couldnt think of how to describe it for the title easily and I am about to go home to maybe tomorrow I will work it out.

    My Vista box is currently demonstrating curious behaviour. When I open IE7 I select a favorite and it opens a new window with that favorite in it. If I do a search with my default provider in the original window, the search results appear in a new tab in the second window.

    The second window does not display this behaviour. It works normally with my standard settings - open favorites in the current tab.

    Again, favorites chosen in the first window continue to appear in the second window. Search results too.

    Running IE7 in safe mode stops this behaviour but I have not installed any new software and I have removed all my temporary internet files/addon settings etc.

    Any ideas would be great. Funny old game eh :)
