Windows 7: Unable to open link in new tab and won;t open new window

Of course now I wish I'd captured the registry files to see which ones were the problem.

Wish I'd captured the registry/dlls before the roll back. Leading candidate is either java or mozilla, but since I have a known restore point, if it happens again I might be able duplicate the cause or at least flag the differences.

One other tidbit, I did load a bunch of old files from an old drive that had been retired. Norton was run immediately after the download and found Trogan.Wimad (install.xxxtoolbar.com), although the infected file was never opened.

I now have this problem exactly as described. For some reason I can not find a restore point before the problem started. I can't open new tabs, new windows or java (open application) which allows a new window to open.
My web experince has gone to $h!+, and I can't get into my banking website.
HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello nizpro and welcome to Seven Forums.

Have you tried basic housekeeping chores like deleting temp files, history, browser cache, etc? Although you didn't say I'm guessing you're using IE9. Did you try running it without add-ons? Also, have you tried the suggestions in post # 6?

Though explorer 9 (fully updated) has continued to work after the rollback (and through) several automatic updates, java has never been the same since.

and by the way, I did try all the house cleaning stuff and more, it wasn't till I went to a previous restore that the functionality came back in internet explorer, though the java installation was left crippled.

Yeh I did the disable addon thing. I deleted all temp files and upgraded to IE9 because the issue started in 8. I'm leaning toward an Adobe flash player upgrade as the culprit but can't be sure. after it started windows did an update and my pc won't let me restore before the issue. I hope I'm not stuck with it.

  3. Type regsvr32 urlmon.dll, and then click OK.
  4. When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded" message, click OK.
If this does not resolve the problem, repeat steps 2 through 4 for each of the following files (in step 3, replace Urlmon.dll with each of the file names below):
  • Shdocvw.dll
  • Actxprxy.dll
  • Oleaut32.dll
  • Mshtml.dll
  • Browseui.dll
  • Shell32.dllShell32.dll
When I attempt this I get an error msg.
"The module 'shdocvw.dll' was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found. Make sure that 'shdocvw.dll' is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again." (same for all in list)
I would have attached a pic of the msg but the magage attachments link won't work for me due to this issue

You could try uninstalling Adobe Flash temporarily. Best if you use their uninstaller.

Uninstall Flash Player | Windows

After removal, try running System File Checker scan. If any problems are noted run it 3-4 times and post back the results.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
