Hi.
Since a virus fix I can only open one web page at a time. Normally where I would press Ctrl + N for a new page, if i now do this my existing page closes as the new one opens. Similarly, any web page with a link, if clicked shuts down the existing page as it opens the link.
Can anyone advise me as to how I might repair this?

Thanks

Hi thatbloke.

What version of IE do you have?

Here's a link that explains how to manually repair/reinstall IE6.

Also check for third-party toolbars, like Yahoo, Google, etc. If you have any of those installed, try uninstalling them.

In Windows Explorer >Tools> Folder Options > General do you by chance have the "reuse windows" box checked? In Internet Explorer> Tools> Internet Options> Advanced do you have "reuse windows" checked?

Hi. I do indeed have "reuse windows" checked. Should I not have?

Doesn't seem to have made any difference and I don't have the XP discs as I bought this machine secondhand with XP already on it so not sure I can do the earlier suggested fixes. Is there anything else I could try?

Thanks as ever!
