ie8 tabb browsing grayed out

Hi to all,
I have a problem to use ie8 Tabb Browsing option.
Itís grayed out and I cannot enable/disable it.
Any help please.

At the moment tabb browsing is disabled and grayed out;

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TabbedBrowsing]
"WarnOnClose"=dword:00000001
"OpenInForeground"=dword:00000000
"OpenAllHomePages"=dword:00000001
"Groups"=dword:00000001
"QuickTabsThreshold"=dword:00000001
"ThumbnailBehavior"=dword:00000001
"NewTabPageShow"=dword:00000002
"PopupsUseNewWindow"=dword:00000001
"ShortcutBehavior"=dword:00000001
"UseMRUSwitching"="no"
"NewTabPageShowClosedTabs"=dword:00000001
"NewTabPageShowActivities"=dword:00000001
"Enabled"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TabbedBrowsing]
"NewTabPageShowClosedTabs"=dword:00000001

"Enabled"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TabbedBrowsing]
"Groups"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TabbedBrowsing]
"Enabled"=dword:00000000 (if I change dword:0000001 this will enable tabb browsing but still grayed out)

Hello Riala, and welcome to Seven Forums.

UPDATE:
I have created this tutorial to help out better. You would want to use either method in OPTION TWO to enable tabbed browsing.

Internet Explorer Tabbed Browsing - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi, by looking at this, this will delete the TabbBrowsing reg folders! Is this ment to re-set ie8 to the default? because it did not work for me!
What else could I try?

Riala,

I updated the REG download. Please try the new version.
Be sure that you restart the computer after merging the REG file to fully apply it.

It will only remove the entries from the locations that would affect all users.
