Default Open In New Window Fails In IE 6.0 SP2

On my Windows XP computer, I have noticed recently that when I click on some links on Internet Explorer 6.0 SP2, and when right clicking and choosing open in a new window, a new window appears and doesn’t do anything.

If I right click and choose copy shortcut, and then paste this shortcut into the new window’s address bar and click go, however, it then goes to the address. It’s just really annoying having to do this as opposed to just clicking on a link and the page loading itself. Can anyone help?

I am running Windows firewall, Mcafee Viruscan 8.0, Google toolbar (with Pop-Up Stopper), Pop-Up Stopper Free Edition, and Windows SP2 Pop-Up Stopper. These have been installed and running perfectly for ages though, so I don't think they are the problem.
