The problem is exactly as described in the title. There seem to be
suggestions for IE7 but not 8.

It is running on XP Home BTW

Re: internet explorer 8 flashes and disappears at startup
Hi,
1. Start Internet Explorer without add-ons from:
Right-click the IE icon on the desktop. Choose Start without add-ons.
or
Programs> Accessories> System tools> Internet Explorer (no add-ons)
If the problem goes away, you have an incompatible browser add-on installed.

For troubleshooting information see:
IEBlog Troubleshooting and Internet Explorer’s (No Add-ons) Mode:

928426- Internet Explorer 7 may exit immediately when it includes an add-on
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928426

Windows Vista Help- Internet Explorer add-ons frequently asked questions:
http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Win...f9b7e1033.mspx

2. Look for "Problem: After installing, IE7 starts then vanishes" at
http://www.enhanceie.com/ie/troubleshoot.asp Also applicable to IE8.

Hope this helps,
Don

When you start Internet Explorer 8, it opens and then closes immediately:
