That's about all the repair that's left to IE7 users in Vista.
By doing that presumably you effectively cleared all your userdata,
deleted all your add-ons, and re-registered all the IE related .dlls
(or so we were told when MS were asked about how IE7 replaced
the IE6sp2 /rereg facility.)

Do you have any other software installed which might be interfering
with those operations? E.g. another browser which might be partially
taking over then?
What I would do is Run... ProcMon to try to see what is happening
when you try to open those other tabs. That diagnostic would be most
useful when you had an otherwise identical trace from another system
which was working normally.
To get more help I think you should post in Vista specific newsgroups too.
Cross-posting for convenience.
