Windows 7: IE9 Unwanted InPrivate Viewing from Links

IE9 Unwanted InPrivate Viewing from Links


I've had IE shortcuts on my desktop that I've used without problem for years. Since about 3 days ago whenever I double click one of these links the page opens in InPrivate viewing. If I close the page and retry, the page opens normally without InPrivate.

I get the same problem when opening links from emails but closing the webpage and retrying results in me still getting InPrivate viewing. The only option with links in emails is to copy & paste the link.

Can anyone tell me how to prevent this happening?

Cheers - TB

You might also try a System Restore point from before this began to see if the problem goes away. A Guy

Update: Tried both the IE9 restore methods but no joy. Unfortunately, I have reduced the disk space for restore images too much so only have one image from a couple of days ago. I was thinking the other week that it was about time for a Windows reinstall so that seems like the answer.

Thanks again both for your replies - Cheers TB

Open I.E.9 and go to Safty/In Private View and at the bottom, turn off private view.
Notice Private View is for more security.

InPrivate Filtering (IE8)
Every time I restart the browser the InPrivate Filtering gets disabled even if I had it enabled on the previous session. Is there anyway to fix this? Also if you add a lot of rules to the InPrivate Filtering list will it slow down the browser?
