Hi emo,

How are you running a new IE instance? Perhaps your link is being opened in the same already created window and your previous page goes to history (i.e. pressing Back will restore that page).

Pozdravi, Geo

OK. "EsoftBG";

  2). Clicking on it's icon;

  Each time that you click on the IE Icon, you are then launching a New Instance of the IE to memory. When the new instance is launched, you are probably loosing the 1st instance do to a Memory Allocation issue.
Or something of the sort.

  Running IE you should only run "1" instance with several Child windows of it, This way you are not sending any other instances to Memory.
If you do perhaps want to run another instance, then do not do it with just "1" IE Window open, as it will "Take Over" that Window.

i.e. : You go here:  http://experts-exchange.com
you run another "Instance" of IE by double Clicking its Icon.
The above already Open instance of IE will be over-written.

Now generally this does not usually happen, but since this is a recent thing for you since installing " Yahoo! Messenger " then I would suggest:

#1: Installing Yahoo! Messenger (Run a test to see if problem persist)

#2: Tools > Options > [General tab]
See the "Browse Folders" section; make sure "Open each folder in its own window" is selected.

(#3. Just found)
#3: Check this link below, Very bottom article may have a solution for you, as it is declared as a "Yahoo!" issue when installing their Messenger. (Don’t you just love it when a Development company such as Yahoo's goes in and messes with people’s stuff? I know I do, and that is one reason why I will not install there messenger know more)

Thanks Carrzkiss,
> (Don’t you just love it when a Development company such as Yahoo's goes in and messes with people’s stuff? I know I do, and that is one reason why I will not install there messenger know more)

Your sentence above encouraged me to uninstall 3 Yahoo! applications using Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs and after every uninstall to check if my problem persists. After I did uninstall the Yahoo! ToolBar, my problem does not exist anymore !!!!
