New Windows with TWebBroser Control and IE6 SP1 (Delphi 5)

I am having a problem with IE6 SP1 and the TWebBrowser Control in Delphi. Since upgrading to SP1 on IE6, I can no longer click a hyperlink with a "_blank" target. The program will lock up. Has anyone else experianced this problem, and if so, how do you get around it?

Thank you in advance.

I have a program with TWebBrowser, and i have IE6 SP1. No problems. I think, you better double check your code. Do you have a code in OnNewWindow2 event?

No, I do not have any code in the OnNewWindow2 event. I am going that route now since I have not had any luck with this. Here is some more background. The program works fine on computers running IE5 , IE5.5 and IE6. It just recently stopped working on some computers using IE6 and the only common thread that I could find was that they all had SP1. I suppose that it could have been some other patch or security update. I am on WinXP pro, and have all updates applied. The program (and other similar programs) used to work. Even the WebBrowser Demo included with Delphi no longer works when you click a HyperLink that has a "_blank" target. Thank you for your comments.
Very strange situation :)
Just checked webbrows.exe and found no problem.
BTW, did ENTER key works in you program, when you fill out HTML fors and try to POST it?

 I just checked it, and the ENTER key does not work to post a form.

  In addition to this, I can do a "Ctrl-N" in the window, and it will launch a new window with the current page in it. ????????????
Try to create blank app. with TWEBBrowe on main form. Will you have the same problem?

  Thanks for the suggestion. The first thing that I did when we started experiancing this problem was to go to the basic app. (Just a form and a TWebBrowser) and a simple web page.  In the form activate method, I am calling the Navigate method of the browser to load the page. I am still having the same problems with this simple app.
