Can't open links with IE7

I installed IE7 on my computer and ever since I did I haven't been able to open links on yahoo, msn and a few other sites. When I had IE6 everything worked just fine and I had no problems at all opening links in any site, now with IE7 everytime I have this problem it seems like I have to refresh the pages and move withing seconds to the links I wanna open so that they MIGHT work and open, but if not they are just dead links.
I've checked all my settings on my pop-up blocker and all of that and they are the same as when I had IE6 so I'm clueless on what's causing this links to go dead.

Anybody else having this problem?
Does anybody have an idea what causes this and how can I fix it?

Thanks :whistling:

could you give a little more detail? what exactly happens when you click on a link in a page? does it open a new tab? do you get any errors?

Check your Pop-Up Blocker controls...

I had a simular problem and attributed it to the Pop-Up Blocker.

You can on a temporary basis disable the popup blocker for certain sites.

check for the yellow bar at the top of the browser window or click on the tools tab.

As of now I wouldn't say malware issues. But follow the advice from the Malware Pros on this site. They know their stuff.

I have the same problem. In Firefox 2, it works fine, and it worked fine in IE6 before the upgrade. Here's a linkto teh site. The links in the left to navigate the site are dead in IE7. Turned off the pop up blocker but it did not help.
