open new window only works in second browser

  1. Hi,

    I've been reading the many post regarding the problem with opening new windows and nothing seems to work for me. When I open IE and try to click on open new window it just freezes for a minute and then acts as if I didn't do anything.

    What I found out today is that when I press ctrl-n to open another window and then close the original window, the "open new window" and pop-ups work in the second window.

    Any ideas why it doesn't work in the first

    That is a very strange solution. I have this problem currently and the only way I figured out how to fix it was to get a new browser :) Opera.

    I'll have to give that a shot when I get home and see if it fixes anything.

    I figured it out...

    for some reason the icon on my desktop was opening up a corrupted version of ie. When I opened a new window using ctrl-n it opened up the version that I had recently downloaded in an attempt to fix the problem. I deleted the icon on my desktop and haven't had any problems.

    Thank you!

    Very intersting. I forgot I did a repair of Windows and it fixed the IE problem. But I will have to keep that in mind for the future. Thanks again ladywebby :grinthumb
