Somehow, I have gotten into a situation where whenever I do a Ctrl+<LeftClick>, Internet Explorer takes this sequence and opens up a new browser window (maximized), with the window being the home page.  However, I have a Java applet that requires the Microsoft JVM, and to do a particular task in this applet, I have to do a Ctrl+<LeftClick> selection (extended selection ListView).  However, I can't because the browser is intercepting this sequence.  How do I disable this?  I have looked in all the of the Internet Explorer options, tried deleting my Local Settings for Internet Explorer, and tried deleting a few registry entries with no success.

You probably need to determine what program changed the settings. If it is not an accessibility issue, check other applications like video drivers that add screen controls and enhancements etc. As ctrl left-click is a default windows action, it is not usually ever changed by an microsoft applications.
