IE 8 Uninstalled, next step?

New computer, Toshiba Satellite L500
/OS=Windows 7 Pro
Installed at 32 bit
Symptom:
IE 8 did not have 'Open in New Tab' or
'Open in New Window'

Tried everything over a few days...reset, IEFix etc...
nothing worked.

So uninstalled from Control Panel/ ...

Q. What is the best way to re-install?
Can it be done within Win 7? or
Must it be d/loaded from MS site?

Control Panel/Programs and Features/Turn Windows Features on or off; there is a check box for IE8.

Thank you Ron

Notice the restored IE 8 has retained the setting I made before
un-install.
Also this uninstall then reinstall has not fixed the problem.

The symptom is:

In IE 8 - a R.click/ Open in New Tab and
a R.click/Open in New Window

do not work.
The New Tab does open a Tab but it doesn't move ... nothing
on bottom bar ...no progress bar or url
New Window cmd does nothing at all.

Steps taken so far:
Reset
IEFix from Internet Explorer FAQ - Repair IE8 (IE7)
SF IE Restorator from SF IE Restorator Free Download and Reviews - Fileforum
Uninstall - reinstall
sfc /scannow comes up with all clear.

I don't know what else I can try.
Tabs work fine in FFox (which I had to d/load and use)
System uses Zone Alarm Security Suite and I am loathe
to turn this off while online.

Mine works fine but I only have IE installed. Perhaps you could try making IE your default browser.

No change.
It's a mystery!

If you go to Start and in the Search box start typing in Internet Explorer and you will soon see Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) - click on that and see if you have the right-context menu items there.

This is problem is typically caused by conflicts with added toolbars - the Yahoo toolbar seems to be a common culprit.

Anyway I was searching about this topic & found this:

How to Fix ‚€˜Open in New Tab/Window‚€™ problem in IE8 ?

May be a possible fix for you.

Hi Digerati ... no didn't have any effect.
No don't have Yahoo ... and have tested without add-ons.

Gilly I'll follow up yr lead : - first method failed so trying 2nd ... hmm
looks like a whole rebuild...the first one worked but latter ones didn't.
But it's the best lead ive' had on the problem so thanks.
