IE6 wont open new link window

One day all of a sudden IE6 stopped opening new windows by right clicking “Open Link in New Window”. After some research I found the solution, actually it seems like there is more than one cause to this problem, in my case the issue was solved by registering the urlmon.dll file with the command-line regsvr32. POSSIBLE CAUSE This erratic behavior may arise for one or more of the following reasons: • An incorrect location for the Urlmon.dll file (Default) value setting in one or more of the following registry keys points: [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{79eac9e0-baf9-11ce-8c82-00aa004ba90b}\InprocServer32] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{79eac9f1-baf9-11ce-8c82-00aa004ba90b}\InprocServer32] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{79eac9f2-baf9-11ce-8c82-00aa004ba90b}\InprocServer32] This Behavior May Occur if you install a customized version of Internet Explorer that was created with the Internet Explorer Administration Kit (IEAK) version 5.01 Service Pack 1 (SP1), 5.5 SP1, or 6.0.• The following registry key is missing or damaged: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Interface\{00020400-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} • One or more of the following files is missing, damaged, or improperly registered: • Urlmon.dll • Mshtml.dll • Actxprxy.dll • Oleaut32.dll • Shell32.dll • Shdocvw.dll FIX (only for Windows XP and Windows 2000) To resolve this problem in Internet Explorer, follow these steps: 1. Quit all programs that are running. 2. Click Start, and then click Run. 3. Type regsvr32 urlmon.dll, and then click OK. 4. When you receive the “DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded” message, click OK. If this does not resolve the problem, repeat steps 2 through 4 for each of the following files (in step 3, replace Urlmon.dll with each of the file names below): • Shdocvw.dll • Actxprxy.dll • Oleaut32.dll • Mshtml.dll • Browseui.dll • Shell32.dll Restart the computer to enable the changes to take effect. If the problem is still not resolved, verify that the following registry values are present and correct: Click Start, and then click Run. Type regedit and press enter, browse for the corresponding key. HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Interface\{00020400-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} Name: (Default) Value: IDispatch HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Interface\{00020400-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\ProxyStubClsid Name: (Default) Value: {00020420-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Interface\{00020400-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\ProxyStubClsid32 Name: (Default) Value: {00020420-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}

    2 years agoI had this same problem on my brand new ctmouper! It’s so frustrating since the few days I’ve had the ctmouper I’ve spent most of my time on it just trying to fix IE. I have tried EVERY fix out there and NOTHING worked. So what I finally did was do system restore to bring the ctmouper back to brand new. Then Immediately cancel the windows updates. It was the windows updates that did it to my ctmouper. Everything works fine now.Reply
