    Hi,
    Is that the only page your having issues with ?
    You might try this,
    When ie is open use Alt+TD or Ctrl+Shift+Delete
    Uncheck the top box and everything else for that matter to keep your login....
    Click on Delete.
    Close ie and re-open.

    Not sure what you mean by us that the only page you are having trouble with. If I click right click on any google search results and click open in new window or open in new tab I get a whit page with google.co.uk in the actual tab at the top of the page. If I click on a link in an outlook email it opens the new tab and link fine. Nothing has changed after trying your suggestions.

    Hi,
    Well your question did only contain one sentence so yes there was allot of assumption on my part

    What happens from this page,
    https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl
    Also if your using a mouse what happens if the center mouse wheel click on the search links ?
    Cheers.
