Every time I click on a new link, unless it "replaces" the current page, it will not open a new window. Surfing the net with only one window is frustrating!!

PLEASE HELP!!

(By the way....I have Windows 98)

Try This,
Go into the control panel and double click Internet Options. When the Internet properties box is open select advanced and then scroll down and make sure "Reuse windows for launching shortcuts" is NOT ticked.

In Internet Explorer you can keep the Shift Key pressed while you click on a link. That will open it in a new window. You can also right click on a link and select "Open in New Window".

Alternatively, switch over to a browser with tabs. Like Netscape 7 or Mozilla. I am very happy with Netscape 7 browser. Although the mail client is pathetic and comes nowhere near Outlook Express in terms of looks, features and ease of use.

I had the same problem and this is what I found in this forum and it worked for me:
Go to Start/run, and type SFC. Choose 'Extract One File From Installation Disk'. Type oleaut32.dll, not worrying about its location.
Then, click Start.

I have been having this same problem for a month now. I couldn't find a solution. This is what I do: I click the link and then click on stop and then i click on refresh. This works for me.
