IE8 on Windows 7 can create new Windows or new Tabs

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Peter S., Mar 1, 2010.

  1. Who are you and what have you done with our OP, Peter S.?

    To avoid confusion, please begin a new thread about your specific problem
    and computer. State your IE version and full Windows version (e.g., WinXP
    SP3; Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2; Win7; Win7 64-bit) in your first post.
    Thank you.

  2. Don't worry about it. That part of the repair has been removed in the
    other versions. If you want to see how it works you can comment out the
    ECHO OFF and remove all the /S (silent) switches on the regsvr32.exe
    commands. The Access is denied occurs in a bit at the end which uses a
    reg.exe command to try to repair a known error in IE7 if someone does a
    regsvr32.exe /i shdocvw.dll. We're not sure if it is even a problem any
    more in IE8.

    BTW have you tried the W7 troubleshooter(s) for IE? <eg>

    Oh. (I just read what your problem is.) I have the same one. So I
    guess they may have tried to fix the earlier bug and botched it. My
    workaround is to set my Home page to About:Tabs and then have the New tab
    setting open my Home page. I hardly ever open my Home page for About:Blank
    so this is really no loss for me.

    Otherwise if you want to find out what the permission error is use ProcMon.
    More security/obscurity. ; ]

    Your reply was rude and unnecessary. Why waste your time on this blog if you cannot be helpful.

    This isn't a blog.
