Usually when you click on the New menu in Internet Explorer it is expanded to include options like New Window, Message, Post and Internet Call. Using this tweak will stop the menu expanding and therefore only display the "New Window" option.
Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new DWORD value called 'NoExpandedNewMenu' and set the value to '1' to stop the expanded menu from displaying.

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
Value Name: NoExpandedNewMenu
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Data: (0 = expanded, 1 = not expanded)
