Have you ever had an occasion where you cannot open a new Internet Explorer window or nothing occurs after you click a link? With Internet Explorer, Outlook or other web based programs you can have a hyperlink that you can click on to open a new browser window to take you to whatever web page it’s linked to.

An easy fix for this is to download and install IEFix. It’s a free program that can be found here. IEFix Registers the core Internet Explorer libraries, repairs Internet Explorer using IE.INF method & fixes two important registry keys which are required to set Internet Explorer as default.
Be warned that you should use this at your own risk because nothing is perfect!
