IE8 won't open links in tabs and then freezes
Everytime I try to open a link in a tab, IE8 will freeze for a minute and
then open the link in a new window instead of a tab. This is getting really
annoying. Please Help.

Hi,
Start Internet Explorer without add-ons by right-clicking the IE icon on the
desktop. Choose Start without add-ons.
or
from Start> Programs> Accessories> System tools> Internet Explorer (no
add-ons)
If the problem goes away, you have an incompatible browser add-on installed.

For troubleshooting information see:

Hope this helps,

Re: IE8 won't open links in tabs and then freezes
Hello Everyone,

I have found the conflicting software that causes IE to "hang" temporarily
and keeps additional windows from opening.

Here is the work-a-round I am currently using with great results.

1: Open Internet Explorer
2: Click on the "Tools" menu
3: Select "Manage Add-ons"
4: Pull the scroll bar down until you see "Sun Microsystems"
5: Highlight "Java(tm) Plug-In 2 SSV Helper", then click "Disable"
6: Click "Close"
7: Exit/Close Internet Explorer, restart computer, launch Internet Explorer
and you should be back to normal.

If you found this helpful, please help me send my 11 year old son to
Washington D.C. this Spring. He has been selected to represent his charter
school and needs to raise $2000 by Springtime to afford the trip. Any
donation would be appreciated...even a dollar! Here is my PayPal address:
Pro-Power@hughes.net Thank you
