IE7: Opens new browser when clicking link

    I cannot figure this out and it's a pain in the rear. While in a web site, I
    click the link that is supposed to put the data in the top half of the
    browser (This site has a navigation on the bottom of the webpage and a view
    in the top page).

    None of the settings allow for the navigation links to open in the same
    window as the site, so when you click it opens a completely new page and than
    instead of having the navigation at the bottom you have to close the new
    window and click the navigation again. Ugh!

    BTW, it's not the website since it works in other browsers and in IE7 before.

    A little more reseached and it turns out to be the frames that isn't working.
    When I click the link it is supposed to go to the top frame, but opens a new
    browser (doesn't even create a new tab).

    Thought it might be a java issue, so I downloaded the most recent issue and
    still no luck.

    Windows XP or Vista?

    1. The NVIDIA control panel can cause a similar problem. Check Task Manager
    (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) for nwiz.exe or nview.exe. Disable them if found. Does the
    problem go away? The nvidia control panel is not necessary and can be
    disabled from Run> msconfig> Startup tab.

    2. Check for an incompatible browser add-on.
