Popup windows in internet explorer 8 hang and never finish downloading

I am running Windows 7 x64 with internet explorer 8 and I noticed that popup windows in Outlook Web Access would open the window but would hang. The content would never display and the cursor would continue spinning forever.

"I called Microsoft about this problem and after about 2 hours on the phone I came up empty handed. They were unable to determine the cause of the problem and they suggested I rebuild the computer.

I did this and confirmed that the Outlook Web Access site worked as I installed applications to get my computer back to it's original state.

I eventually tracked the problem down to the source control program Vault (http://www.sourcegear.com/).

When I installed the client version 4.0.4 the problem occurred. If I uninstalled and rebooted the computer the problem would go away. Unable to believe it the first time I tried it again. There is no mistaking that this is the problem...

I am speachless...

Update 12/1/2009:
I contacted SourceGear technical support and they researched the problem and suggested I run the following commands to re-register some DLLs.

regsvr32 ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll""
regsvr32 ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\actxprxy.dll""

The second command failed for me as the DLL is not on my system but the problem appears to be resolved."
