If you're pained because right-clicking on a link in IE7 doesn't include an option for "Open in New Tab," you're likely running the Google Toolbar. Disable the Google Toolbar by right-clicking on the IE Toolbar and deselecting it.
You can also try installing the Google Toolbar T4 Beta; that worked for me.
