Try running IE8 with add-ons disabled.
Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No
Add-ons) to start IE8 without any add-ons. Try using the browser and see if
the same problem arises.
If the problem does not occur again, start IE8 normally, go to Tools (if the
menu bar does not appear, hit the Alt key on the keyboard) > Manage Add-ons.
Disable all the add-ons under 'Toolbars and Extensions'. Enable each add-on
one at each time and see if the problem occurs again. Once it occurs again
after enabling an add-on, you have nailed the culprit.
Since you say this happens only sometimes, it is going to be a long time to
narrow down the add-on causing the problem, if it works with add-ons
disabled. Try to have only the required add-ons enabled. In Manage Add-ons,
you need to change to "All Add-ons" under Show. Here, you can disable the
ones you do not need.
