Windows 7: IE 9 Tab browsing problem

IE 9 Tab browsing problem

Originally posted 6 days ago but adding new info here and hope some new person sees this and helps me.

I downloaded IE 9 beta with no apparent problem and the installation ended with a window which said some of the IE files were in use and could not be updated. I donít know which these were since nothing was open but I continued, restarted ok, and on from there.
Problem: Open IE ok but can only tab browse when windows is maximized (double boxes.)
CTRL+W, right click and select "Close Tab" to close a tab, and CTRL+TAB to switch between tabs works fine no matter what the size/orientation of IE. But click on the tab "x", depress mouse wheel to close tab, and click on tab to select it will only work when maximized (double boxes.) Seems like IE 9 will only work with windows maximized. All other features work ok.
Installing with no add-ons, in safe mode, or with anti-virus off makes no difference. All updates current. Windows 7 64 bit. Same for both 32 bit and 64 bit IE.
I canít help think I have a wrong setting somewhere or AN IE FILE WHICH IS IN USE AND CANNOT BE UPDATED IS CAUSING THE PROBLEM. How do I find and close this file? Has anyone else had this or a related problem? Are there any ideas?
Is there some cool person from Microsoft or an MVP reading this who has a solution in his back pocket to give me?

i've got one problem with IE9 on Win7Pro 64Bit as well. When I click for new Tab SOMETIMES it just stuck there(dosen't open anything and dosen't let me work on the current page 0_o) no response for 3-4 min. Then it works.

@philav I don't think it's your setting, i think it's the bug on IE9 that's why it's BETA version.
