Problem with My Explorer


Registered Member
I can not open a new windown anymore. I dont know what happened but it will only allow one explorer window open at a time. So I can't like click a link and leave the forum open to look at something else. Anyone know how to fix this?

Most likely suspect is a corrupted file.

If you have your windows CD handy, do the following.

Click Start > Run
in the dialog box type
sfc /scannow
Click OK
If any files are missing or corrupted, you will be prompted to install your windows CD

Thanks but this is my work computer. It didnt start doing this until after our network came back up after the hurricane. It just WILL NOT open a new window. I thought it might be my pop up blocker, but turning it off doesn't help......

crazy computers!

This is STILL driving me insane! Every time I click on something that should be brought up in another window it just loads it in the current window and then I can not click back. I have to go to my history and go back to where I was at to begin with!!!!
