Is there a way to use group policy to set all the computers on my network to check mark the advanced internet explorer option for opening all links in a new window?

yes.

create a .REG file with the following contents

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"AllowWindowReuse"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"AllowWindowReuse"=dword:00000000
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

save as:  NoReuse.REG in your C:\Drive
**********************************************************
Now create a LOGON BATCH file

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Echo Off
START %SystemRoot%\regedit /s %SystemDrive%\NoReuse.REG
exit
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

save as: NoReuse.BAT in your C:\Drive

Use Group Policy Editor to set up a LOGON script
RUN>gpedit.msc

goto USER CONFIGURATION and include this new BATCH FILE
it will deploy the registry changes as new users logon to the system.

Hope that was what you wanted !

I was assuming you were refering to the Reuse windows for launching shortcuts located in the Tools>Internet Options>Advanced section
