    This is my work computer.

    I'm constantly slowed down by pop-ups opening in new windows instead of new tabs.

    Here's what happens:

    - I go to Tools > Internet Options > General > Tabs Settings
    - Change "When a pop-up is encountered" from "Always open pop-ups in a new window" to "Always open pop-ups in a new tab"
    - Click OK
    - Click OK
    - Restart IE
    - ...and the setting has automatically gone back to "Always open pop-ups in a new window"

    I'm going crazy. Please help, and thanks in advance everyoneFor what it's worth:
    - Windows 7 Enterprise
    - 64-bit OS
    - Internet Explorer 8
