I have no idea why this is happening but on my Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit system in IE8 32 bit or IE8 64 bit when I click on a link that is set to open in a new window ( target="_blank") the links are not doing a thing.
They work fine if I click them in Google Chrome and Firefox and they work fine on my laptop in IE7 and they work fine on my friends pc's in IE7 and IE8

I really would like to know what is going on with my IE8 that has stopped them from working,

The links are on my site, in the forums...

you can find the links in question here:
any of the banners on the right hand side. They are all set to open to a new window yet n my IE8 they do NOTHING.

Please help me. This is driving me nuts. Ive cleared cache. Restarted browser, rebooted system... no idea what to do next.

Thank you, Jared
