WebBrowser triggers NewWindow2 event in Windows 7 but not in XP/Vista

WebBrowser triggers NewWindow2 event in Windows 7 but not in XP/Vista

WebBrowser triggers NewWindow2 event in Windows 7 but not in XP/Vista

I'm using a WebBrowser control to display Help pages (stored locally), so when the form loads it creates a page with two frames - the top frame is a kind of navigation strip and the main area is where Help is displayed, that frame is called MAIN. When I want to display a help page I do this:


w_Web.Navigate2 App.Path & "\Help.htm", , "MAIN" 

For some reason on some Windows 7 machines this triggers a Navigate2 event and doesn't show any help but on others it works as expected. Is it a local setting in IE which is causing the difference?
