I can't see where this option can be set back to default in IE7's Tools > Internet Options. The Settings button for Tab control in the General tab doesn't seem to have it, and neither does the Advanced tab nor the Security > Custom settings.

All I can suggest is resetting the whole of IE7 to default from Internet Options > Advanced tab, then the Reset button, but beware, all 3rd party add-ons, toolbars etc will be lost, as will all login/password details for web sites that are held by IE, along with cookies, history, and the Temporary Internet Files.

Perhaps others here will have better options.
