Didn't Microsoft disallow that to prevent viruses from infecting users?

You have probably installed SP2 for windows xp. The new version of internet explorer there has a popup blocker. If that is set to on and the links on which you click happen to open as popups, they won't open. By pressing the ctrl key while clicking on the link, it should open. Or you can turn off the popup blocker or change it's strength.
