Open In New Window Issue IE 5.5 & IE 6

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by bri@aol.com, Jul 9, 2004.

    I have Pop-Down installed. It blocks pop ups. I have been using it for a year or two. Recently I had a virus and had
    to reinstall windows. I formatted the hard drive and reinstalled everything, including pop down. For some reason when
    I attempt to open a internet link in a new window, it pauses for a couple of seconds, then opens a new window displaying
    the home page, but it will not open the selected link. If I turn off pop down it will open the link in a new window. I
    have pop down installed on two other computers I use daily and neither of them exhibit this behaviour. I've attempted
    to use the regsvr32 urlmon.dll command to repair the problem, with no success. The command works - but the problem
    remains. I've attempted to also register shdocvw.dll, msjava.dll, actxprxy.dll oleaut32.dll, mshtml.dll, and
    browseui.dll. I receive error messages with those and once I've done them, I can't open in a new window at all. I'm
    having this trouble with both IE 5.5 & IE 6. I've tried to find another popup blocker that works as well and as easily
    and is free with no luck...Any suggestions?

    Alternative popup blocker is the Google toolbar, but
    don't use the advanced features.

    Gave it a try. It didn't take care of everything - I still had things pop up that were blocked with my previous blocker
    and expanded the size of workspace. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    Re: Open In New Window Issue IE 5.5 & IE 6 - Update

    Thanks for the reply. My apologies for not stating I'm using Windows 98. I tried the reinstall and repair to no avail.
    Gave the google toolbar without advanced features a try. It didn't take care of everything - I still had things pop up
    that were blocked with my previous blocker and expanded the size of workspace. Thanks for the suggestion though.
