  1. I have acer laptop. When I try to open a link it will not let unless i open in a new window. When I try it puts two little squares at the link. I am running vista and it just does it on this computer. Any ideas?

    Will Not Open

    I still need help. I tried all the settings but no luck. If I doubleclick on the window it will not open. If I right click the drop down gives me the option to cilick on open in a new window.and it opens. It will not open when I double click the link. I would llike to figure out. This bugs the heck out of me.

    Go to the Control Panel> Folder options> General tab> Click items as follows> CHECK Single click to Open> Apply> OK.

    See if that makes any difference.

    Also, go to Internet Options and make sure the correct browser is set to the Default.

    No iI have not yet. I tried what you said and no luck yet. Any more ideas? Thanks

    I figured it out finally. You need to go internet options and go advanced then reset the internet explorer. Then you must restart Internet Explorer. Is there a way to marked solved? Thanks for the help Bobbye. Now if I can figure out my other post!
