Internet Explorer Problem!!!

By ExtremelyInOverMyHead ·
Honestly I feel stupid asking this question, but I can't find anyone who has had this happen to them... When I'm in Internet Explorer, and I want to open another Explorer window, it automatically closes my first window and I'm unable to get back to where I was in the first window. I've scanned for spyware, but to no avail. Does anyone know what's wrong?

try this let me know it works

1. Quit all programs that are running.
2. Click Start, and then click Run.
3. Type regsvr32 urlmon.dll, and then click OK.
4. When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded" message, click OK.
If this does not resolve the problem, repeat steps 2 through 4 for each of the following files (in step 3, replace Urlmon.dll with each of the file names below):
? Shdocvw.dll
? Actxprxy.dll
? Oleaut32.dll
? Mshtml.dll
? Browseui.dll
? Shell32.dll

We emailed back and forth a few times and located the problem... The box that enabled third party browser extensions was checked and was the problem!!! Great job Craig!!

I am opening different IE windows by <ctrl> N and also by clicking the quicklaunch IE icon... If I'm downloading a file or anything it closes all the windows that are open and opens a new one.

My 2c worth: I don't know what's wrong because I only use IE when having to visit sites that do not support W3C standards. Otherwise I use Mozilla Firefox and its tabbed browsing to open new windows.
