A Tough WebBrowser Problem

I am using Win98, IE6 and VB6.

I have a webbrowser on a form. I do not want a new window to open up, so this is what I did:

' ---------- Start code ------------

Dim WithEvents Web_VI As SHDocVwCtl.WebBrowser_V1

Private Sub Form_Load()
   Set Web_VI = WebBrowser1.Object
End Sub

Private Sub Web_VI_NewWindow(ByVal URL As String, ByVal Flags As Long, ByVal TargetFrameName As String, PostData As Variant, ByVal Headers As String, Processed As Boolean)
   Processed = True
   WebBrowser1.Navigate2 URL
End Sub

' --------- End code ----------------

Whenever a new window tries to open, it does not, and the current window opens to the URL that was supposed to be in the new window.  Everything seems to work, except that after the Web_VI_NewWindow procedure, the form (along with textboxes) and the webbrowser cannot receive keyboard inputs!

What am I doing wrong?  Please help!

If you have a WebBrowser control on your form, why do you create another one in code?

Why not just:

Private Sub Form_Load()
  WebBrowser1.Navigate2 URL
End Sub

Hi ventond, I found my answer!
I solved my problem by setting ppDisp to the Webbrowser object:

Private Sub WebBrowser1_NewWindow2(ppDisp As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
   Set ppDisp = WebBrowser1.Object
End Sub

Now my next problem is, how do I delete this question?

Thanks Richie.  But my problem returned.

After I set ppDisp to Webbrowser.object, my webbrowser would not go to the link that wants to open a new window!

HELP Please!
