I have seen many of the people searching for IE7 Internet Explorer 7.0 hangs while opening a new page or new tab or new browser.

Some of the symptoms are :
When I have a few IE7 windows open, I am often getting one browser page that will hang, lock up, not respond at all when I "Open in New Window" or "Open in New Tab" - it doesn't discriminate as I can have 2 or up to 10 tabs/browsers open on any of thousands of websites I visit.

It can happen at any time. I can have 2 or more tab browsers open or 2 or more separate browsers open and at any time when I "Open in New Window" or "Open in New Tab" - no particular number at all. Then the hang occurs.

I therefore am stuck with a hang that can cause all of the open IE windows/browsers to crash or I manage to close the window if I am quick enough before all IE windows crash at once. Many times I cannot close the hanging browser and can only work with the current browsers that are open only.

Once this happens I also lose the RIGHT CLICK function on the mouse

Therfore, I have learnt that it is a good idea to then close down all IE browsers altogether and start fresh

Once I do this I regain the RIGHT CLICK function on the mouse again and the browsers work as normal till the next hang


Solution:
It has been noticed that this problem occurs after KB943729 was installed.
To fix it we should disable "Windows Live" plug-ins (Tools->Internet Options->Programs(Tab)->Manage Add Ons).

Once you disable this addon. It should look like below:
