    Email shortcuts in Windows Live Mail will open blank IE-8 window, but not
    the WEB site URL, and second left click will then open a new tab and the WEB
    site of interest. Another program, RoboForm, my password protection program
    is working the same way. It is a minor annoying problem any clues how to fix
    it. I would think it is some kind of registry problem.

    Which version of Windows? (Including SP level- SP1,SP2,etc.)

    1. From Start> Run, type in or copy & paste this command:

    regsvr32 actxprxy.dll

    Hit Enter or click OK.

    2. 902932- A new window opened in Internet Explorer displays a blank white

    3. See if a browser add-on is causing the behavior.
    Start Internet Explorer without add-ons from:
    Right-click the IE icon on the desktop. Choose Start without add-ons.
    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:

    2. Does the behavior persist if you Reset IE Advanced settings (RIES)? <= Read before using!

    3. Does the behavior persist if you boot into Safe Mode with Networking?
    [Careful! Only remain in Safe Mode just long enough to test!]

    4a. What anti-virus application or security suite is installed, is your
    subscription current, and is it supported in IE8? What anti-spyware
    applications (other than Defender)? What third-party firewall (if any)?
    Were any of these applications running in the background when you installed

    4b. Has a Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this machine
    (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought it)?
