hi all,

I've had this problem several times, on 3 different pc's :s
it kinda looks like I attract the bug :)

anyway the first time I didn't really bother it just fixed itself, but lasttime when I was reformatting my pc and reinstalling windows XP, I had the problem right from the start... I mean, I hadn't installed any stuff on my pc yet! I just used the cd's provide with the pc and reinstalled it back like it would be when I bought it...
When I noticed the problem I searched hours for a sollution (and found many, but none that work ;) ). Desperate as I was, I even started the whole process right over: reformatted pc, reinstalld windows... indeed problem was still there...
But as I was trying to fix it, it just fixed it self! Like it did before... If it was because the things I did or just a miracle, I still don't know, but 3 days were past.

To come to the point of the story: I always thought that I was my pc itself that caused the problem. But Yesterday I bought a new pc, brand new, and it worked! all was well (how nice live can be :) ) and this morning... It had it again!

I started looking again for solutions and came across this forum. Tryied almost everything that is proposed here, but still no result ;) !!!!!

I still can't open new windows, links, or even search files on my pc! just nothing happens...

It's one the stranged thing with windows Ive expirienced till now, but still haven't found NO SOLUTION :tazz: ... plese help! I'm really desperate!

LightningHawk,

I had the same problem, and you said to make sure that "enable third party browser extensions" was CHECKED, however another user said that for her it worked when s/he UNchecked it, so I unchecked it and now the browser does indeed open links in new windows for me.

I don't understand this. Is it bad that I unchecked it? I am actually on a friend's computer and although he will be glad to be able to open new windows now, I think he will be fed up if I have messed up his settings in other ways.

Any thoughts?

When I re-boot the links work for a few hours, then stop working again.
