Q: Internet Explorer Issue: Open in New Tab and Open in New Window fails to open anything in IE8 and IE9 on Windows 7 Home Premium PC This thread is locked from future replies

Tabs and Open in New Window FAILS to open anything in IE8 and IE9 on one of my Windows 7 Home Premium PCs - one of a three-pack. A right-click and Open in New Tab opens a blank tab, does not go to the URL.  Right-click and Open in New Window  does NOT open a new window. With IE8 the Tab has Connecting... displayed, but does not connect to anything. Updated via Windows Update to IE9. With IE9 a new tab opens, Tab is blank, the page is null -  Tabs settings are default in Internet Options.   Other web browsers work normally on the problem PC.   I have reinstalled IE9, backed up to IE8, installed IE9 again, did not fix the Tab and New Window issue. On the other two Windows 7 PCs installed from the same medium IE8 and IE9 work correctly.

Answer

A:

Unfortunately I had to resolve the issue before receiving this response.  I did, however try Method 1 and 2.  I reset IE to defaults with no result.  I tried disabling  add-on, no result.  I did not find any reference to the actxprxy.dll in my searches.  The issue was resolved by reinstalling Windows 7.
