Check this registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\ForegroundLockTimeout

change the value to 0.  Note the old value so you can change it back if necessary.

IE Tools|Internet Options|Tabs|Setting fill the radio button i in the section "Open links from other programs |The current tab or window"
