Windows 7: IE8 New Window New Session Confusion

IE8 New Window New Session Confusion

IE8 on WN7 Pro 64, Standard user, IE8 shortcut in task bar opens a session with my favorites and options as I tuned them. All is well.
Now, if IE8 is not open when I click on a link in email or any other place including thumb drives WN 7 starts a new IE8 session in a freshly opened window, however no favorites and no options I set, just the options as per the first time one uses IE8. In fact I get the first use welcome screen. How do I get a link to open IE8 in a fully functional and tuned IE8 session? OBTW my IE8 version is 8.0.7601.17514.
Thanx in advance for your comments and/or advice.
Pete

Add on info to first post

Might my display set up be a factor. I'm using two, a HP ZR22w and an older display from an earlier build, a View Sonic VX910.
Again, Thanx in advance.

Win 7 Session Closes
I use Windows 7 on a VM as my primary workstation. If my VPN connection closes and the connection to the VM is lost then the session is lost. With XP I could always reconnect to the VM with all of my apps, files, etc running. Is there anyway to keep the same functionality with Win 7? Thanks.
