Hi i turned on my comp this morning and my tabs dont work in windows explorer,they work in firefox

I can only load one windows explorer window it wont allow me to open any more even if i double click on a link in the window im in

also if i have my windows explorer open i cant open another one by clicking on the icon on my desktop it just shows an icon down the bottom of my computer for a couple of seconds then it then goes away

i am running internet explorer v 8 on xp profesional on a 5 yrold toshiba laptop with 1.5gb off ram

thanks
Peter

Try this. Close IE8. Open a command prompt. Type regsvr32 actxprxy.dll. Then see if it works
