Cannot open new window in IE

By Haissam ·
Hello all,

Links in internet explorer that open a new window fail to work and right-clicking on a hyperlink and choosing 'open in a new window' does not work either. i.e. nothing happens, the hyperlink does not open neither in the current window nor in another.

It seems that the user installed a pop-up stopper 'gator?' and then uninstalled it but it left this problem.

Any suggestions on what to check for, how to find out what's stopping the new windows from being created?

Hello SyscoKid. thanks for the quick reply but unfortunately that wasn't the problem.
I managed to find out the solution after a while. The problem was that Default Access permissions have been changed in the Dcomcnfg.exe tool
