Internet Explorer wont open second window

  Richard 15:12 13 Feb 2005

Up until a few days ago IE worked fine. Then for some reason if I click on a link and IE tries to open a second window then I get error message send it to Microsoft and the program closes.

Can anyone help. It is no use giving me a second window to open as I cannot get to it.

Which os and what version of ie are you using?
If it's ie6 and you go to add/remove programmes you should get an option to fix it.
What happens if you hold down control and press n?

Window XP SP2 IE6

If I use Ctl N I get the same response it ask me to send the error to Microsoft and IE closes down

Gave up on IE 6 and installed Firefox. So far Firefox looks good

Have the same problem, running Win98se with IE 6, when I try to open a second window, the egg timer appears and everything freezes. Have tried the fix suggested by VOG with no effect.
Any ideas ?
