We have a Windows 7 computer running IE9.  We have cleared the cache, reset the settings, and it still continues to open blank tabs instead of the content that was supposed to be in it.  How can we fix this?

Check your Anti-virus. If it's integrated into your browser it may be forcing them to open blank.

Can you show us the Tabbed Browsing Settings (Internet Options - General - Tabs) on an affected machine ?

e.g.IE9 - Tabbed Browsing Settings
Is it a Win7 64-bit machine by any chance?
I suppose it doesn't do it if you already have an IE9 window open, right?
