Click action opening a link TWICE in IE9 and above

We are facing a problem in IE9/10/11 where a click action opens that link twice in 2 separate windows. We want to perform some steps in the window that is opened by clicking on the link. But because 2 window opens with 1 click action, Selenium is not able to make out which window to choose to perform those steps.
Same script works fine on FF, Chrome and IE8.

    Clicking manually opens only 1 window, which is an expected behavior.
    We have found a solution, provided to us by one of the Sapient QA community members. Using the JavascriptExecutorto execute the click action opened 1 window.
