Hello, and welcome to the Forums. Did you do an Upgrade from Vista or did you do a clean install?

Are you referring to right clicking one of the taskbar icons? If I do that with IE, I get an open new tab or open IE. I do not see an open new window button, but that might be the way you have the tabbed browsing set up in IE.

If you are selecting open a new tab, does an extra one show up?

I have found the problem.

It was A-squared IDS that prevented it.
Thanks for the help.
