Re: Probelsm with IE8
Windows Version : Windows XP with Service pack 3
Nothing Happens: The page does not load
I checked Event Viewer for Internet Explorer and there are no messages.
I have a firewall but it was installed about 6 months ago and IE was working
fine up until about 2 to 3 weeks ago when I installed IE 8.
I have the same problem when running ie 8 with no add ins.
