If you're not terribly attached to IE I'd say switch to Firefox, tabbed browsing is your friend. While the perfectionist in me wants your IE to work, that sounds like the most annoying thing, and I'd rather just use something else in the meantime.

http://www.firefox.com/ -to download

http://www.switch2firefox.com/ -to hear a bunch of propaganda why

And I seriously gave it a go at finding reasons why Firefox sucks...
I googled it :tazz: http://www.google.co...:en-US:official
but seriously, the only reasons I found were ones I don't understand, and ones that don't affect me. So, probability is, you won't care either.

good luck getting something actually done about the problem, though.

When you are browsing in IE, can you press control n and get a new (identical) window?

In IE, tools>Internet Options>Advanced do you have "Reuse windows for launching shortcuts" ticked or unticked?

A long shot, from Windows Explorer> Tools> Folder Options> General
do you have "open each folder in it's own window" ticked? WE & IE are very integrated...

Let us know!
