Is there a way that I can restrict internet explorer so that only one window will open at all times? I have kids that get on the computer and like to play their games but sometimes they just keep clicking and opening new pages until the computer freezes up because they have 20 pages open! I would like there to only be one window open at a time. Thanks for your help!! :) Oh and please give detailed instructions I am not too computer literate!!

The computer I want to do this on has Windows XP and it is IE 7 I believe.

Not sure if this is it:

Reuse Windows for launching shortcuts" setting.

Here's how to get to it: Through Internet Explorer, click Tools, Internet Options and then the Advanced tab. Scroll down to the Browsing settings and look for the Reuse Windows for launching shortcuts and clear the checkbox.

Or check this:

Tools-> Go to the General tab -> In the Tab section(second last section), click on settings.
make sure to select "A new tab in current window" for "Open links from other programs in".

Anything else I can think of requires editing of the Registry keys.
