I have Windows 7 running IE8. After I installed some software, some links in web pages are no longer working. I notice that those "A" links have a "target" with something like "_blank", which would open a new IE window or a tab. Basically, the phenomenon is, when I click that link, a new tab is created with caption “Connecting to …”. The tab is always empty, and the address box shows the URL of the original page.
However, for those links which open the web page in the same IE window, seem working fine.
I would like to repair the IE8 or Windows 7. But I don’t know how.
It’s greatly appreciated if someone can provide some solution.
