I have Vista Business 64 bit. When I open a new tab, the page says

Also says tbr:res?id=tabs&rep=1

I cannot find a solution anywhere on the whole Internet. The computer is only 2 days old, from Dell, and Dell can't help either. It was working on the first day ...

  The webpage cannot be displayed
   
   Most likely cause:
Some content or files on this webpage require a program that you don't have installed.
 
   What you can try:
     Search online for a program you can use to view this web content.  
 
     Retype the address.  
 
     Go back to the previous page.

couple of thing I Had the same problem. Found blog about regitry setting:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AboutURLs...

Modified the value to: "res://ieframe.dll/tabswelcome.htm"

but a mate had it and that didnt fix it but he did try these and so how it worked

1. An addon may be interfering with IE. Disable Addons.  Go to Tools > Add-on Manager, and uncheck the addons.

If you cannot open IE, start IE without addons.  Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No add-ons).

2. Reset IE settings.  Go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced.  Click on "Reset" button. Click OK. Close all browsers. Reboot the computer.

3. Check if a program running in the background is interfering with Internet Explorer. Temporarily disable antivirus and other security programs, firewall, toolbars such as Google and Yahoo, and desktop programs such as MSN and Google.

4. Make sure you have the latest IE and Windows updates.

5. If using Windows XP, uninstall and reinstall IE7.  If you cannot find Internet Explorer 7 in Add or Remove Programs, click Start, click Run, type %windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe, and then press ENTER.

Note: %windir% is the location of your Windows directory, which can usually be found at C:\Windows. To do this, you need to have "view hidden folders" enabled.

I found my own solution. The problem was the google tool bar. The new tab references a function of it, so if you deinstall the toolbar, the new tab button doesn't know what to do. I reinstalled the google toolbar, and now it works.
