My IE 7 tabs have stopped working If I try to use a second tab IE locks and I have to use CLT ALT DEL to end task,. I have uninstalled and reintalled three time now to no avail.

Make sure your Tab settings are correctly set up. Tools > Internet Options > General > in Tabs section click Settings > make sure Enable Tabbed Browsing is checked and also look at other settings further down.

Also, have you tried other options for opening Tabs?

To open a new blank tab, click the New Tab button on the tab row or press CTRL+T. To open a new tab when you follow a link on a webpage, press CTRL as you click the link, or right-click the link and then select Open in New Tab. If you have a mouse with a wheel, you can click a link with the wheel to open a new tab.

Hi Steve
I have identical problem with Dell Dimension 8300, XP prof, IE7. As soon as I open another tab it just says 'connecting' and locks up. Main front tab is ok and I can carry on surfing and using that front tab, but can't close the internet without using ctrl/alt/del. I've check the settings are ok - they're fine. Can you tell me how to uninstall windows live toolbar and start again as I can't find the thread you said you'd post? Many thanks!

I uninstalled the windows live toolbar - which I rarely used anyway - and hey presto - tabs are working again, thank goodness!
