IE problem

Hey all,

I have a problem with Internet Explorer.
When I do a shift-click on a link, or right click on a link, to try to open said link in a new window, *nothing* happens.
This also happens in Outlook Express when I try to open a link by clicking on it.

The problem started with IE5 which I then uninstalled to IE4.
However, the problem still remains.

Anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening ?

Try re-installing your Windows OS.  Just put in your CD and go through set-up.  After re-install check IE4 for proper installation and then proceed to re-install IE5.

I have had a similair problem in the past.  It is easier to do the re-install than troubleshoot down to what is "breaking" your links.

I prefer using IE5 over IE4.

I agree, reinstall always seems to work best with windoze.
Likewise I prefer IE5 over IE4.

Use the repair trick in control panel to repair IE5.0.

Got Control Panel, Add/remove Software.
Scrol down to Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 and select.
when the start pane opens pick the repair button, and ok. This will do a repair on IE 5.0 and should do the trick.
