New IE window opens when I right-click
« on: July 15, 2006, 10:28:06 AM »
For the past few months whenever I right click on anything on AOL or Internet Explorer such as images, links, anything, it opens a new Internet Explorer window before I even have a chance to choose any of the options in the right-click menu.  This is getting very annoying because I use right-click a lot.  I have to wait until that new IE window opens and then I try to right click and "save as" for an image for example, and I cannot even choose any of the options until about 4 tries of right-clicking.  

If anyone knows how to fix this or has had this problem, please let me know.  I went to AOL Help and they said it was an Internet Explorer problem so they could not help me, and to go to Microsoft Support with the link they provided.  When I went there, if you wanted support you would be charged for phone or email support.  Hopefully someone on this board can help.  Thanks in advance!

First make sure all updates are applied, then try this in IE:      
      
1. Start                
2. Settings                
3. Control Panel                
4. Internet Options                
5. Security tab                
6. Reset all 4 security zones to Default                
      
1. Start                
2. Settings                
3. Control Panel                
4. Internet Options                
5. Privacy                
6. Restore 1 Default button                
      
1. Start                
2. Settings                
3. Control Panel                
4. Internet Options                
5. Advanced                
6. Restore 1 Default button                
      
You may need to do the following as well                
      
1. Start                
2. Settings                
3. Control Panel                
4. Internet Options                
5. General tab                
6. Remove cookies, temporary files and history

Does your right mouse button work as normal in other programs?
Only able to visit the forums sporadically, sorry.
