    Hi, I'm in need of help with my internet explorer. When I open it and click
    on a link or try to minimize that window to open another window with
    internet express, the first one disappears. So you cannot have more than
    one internet window open at one time.
    If you do get a page open and are doing something on it, if often just shuts
    off and you're back at your desktop.
    Does anyone know what I have to do to correct this problem?
    I'd appreciate any help I could get. I am not the most computer literate
    person in the world.......
    Thanks a bunch,

  2. Go to Tools | Internet Options | Advanced.
    Uncheck "Reuse windows for launching shortcuts".

    Also, if you have Yahoo Companion, Google toolbar, MSN toolbar, a firewall,
    Earthlink (or another pop-up blocker) My IE2 (a shell for IE) etc.
    Yahoo Companion is a very common cause.

    You'll have to turn off the feature that's blocking new windows or, perhaps,
    uninstall the program (especially uninstall Yahoo Companion).

    With some programs of this type, using Ctrl+click or Shift+click will allow
    a new window.

    If you're *sure* that another program isn't causing this, these links may
    help. Tips #21 & 46
