    IE7 - Opens two windows nearly every time of sites under My Favorites. Also
    programs that have online links peroidically open two windows of those online
    links. For Example: Tonight using my Bible Study progran "Word Search 7", I
    cannot get to their online link to "Bible Discussion Group", because when I
    click on the Bible Discussion Group login, IE7 tries to open two windows of
    that link. That automatically freezes up the program instantly, as that is a
    very high memory usage program, and the PC cannot handle two of them being
    open. I have 2G of RAM, so insufficient memory is NOT THE PROBLEM. The
    problem is the glitch in IE7. How do I stop it? OR, when is MS coming out
    with an update to IE7 that will fix this serious problem?

    Hi,
    You may have an incompatible add-on.
    See: http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2006/07/25/678113.aspx

    Next...
    Disable (for diagnostic purposes) programs such as pop-up blockers,
    security, toolbars and other add-ons for IE, anti-virus, etc. Take a look at
    any program that might be interfering with IE. You may have to reconfigure,
    update, reinstall, or not reinstall, a program.

    * Important... Turn on the Windows Firewall (from Control Panel or Security
    Center) before disabling a third-party firewall.

    Hope this helps,
    Don
