Try running IE8 with add-ons disabled. First, terminate all IEXPLORE.EXE
instances in Task Manager.
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, restart and see if the problem occurs again. Once it
again after enabling an add-on, you have nailed the culprit.
