Windows 7: website links give me a blank tab?

05 Aug 2015   #11

W7 Pro SP1 64bit

No matter what Command Line used to mean, let's call Command Line the text that you run inside of the Command Prompt window. You will also find the term Command Line used as an optional column header within Task Manager > Processes tab (View > Select Columns...). And within Process Explorer. The shortcut field named Target usually contains a Command Line (text) too.

You picked an excellent title for your thread. Many people will find it in the future via search engines. For that reason, I'm going to be a bit verbose:

On a 64bit Operating System that is using IE10 or IE11, you should re-register the 32bit DLL and the 64bit DLL. You must use an elevated Command Prompt to do so. (Elevated Command Prompt).

regsvr32 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll"
regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll"
I'm not saying that this will fix your issue, I'm just adding to what DarKnight suggested.

Starting with IE10, on 64bit Operating Systems, IE starts a 64bit "parent" process. That process has no visible window. The default windows that you see are 32bit "children". Each child can be a 64bit process when Enhanced Protected Mode (EPM) is enabled. It is a bit safer when they are 64bit processes. See this post and the tutorial above it. Those steps work for IE11 too.

On your computer:
If EPM is not enabled, please enable it.
If EPM is enabled, please temporarily disable it.
Restart the computer.
(or exit IE and make sure that IE leaves RAM before restarting IE)
Now test your link - blank tab issue.

If EPM was not enabled, but now IE works fine with EPM enabled, then the problem might be with the 32bit part of IE.

If EPM was enabled, but now IE works fine with EPM not enabled, then the problem might be with the 64bit part of IE.
