IE 11 Opens Links in a Blank Tab

I installed Internet Explorer 11, and now when I click on any link that is supposed to appear in a new tab, I get a Blank Page. This happens on any web page that opens a link in a new page, including the Microsoft.com website. I was using Internet Explorer 9, and it worked fine.


I have read the other posts that recommend that you register a bunch of .dll files. This did not fix the problem. Most of the .dlls could not be found. I have noticed that over the years many others have had this same problem. Is it fixable? What is the fix? I can run Chrome and Safari with no problems.


Any help will be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,

BobV365

Encountered this very problem on IE 11 this week on a Windows 7 Enterprise machine.  The following run from a command line solved the issue for me:

regsvr32 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll"

Problem fixed using this program:

Complete Internet Repair is the application's name and it can be downloaded off of cNet via download.com. Out of all of the available options to choose from I checked Repair Internet Explorer ONLY.

I'm not sure what particular action, of the many it performs was responsible for the fix but its now working ok.
