Start>Control Panel>Internet Options - General tab, set your homepage to
:blank. Remove any secondary homepages.
Start IE normally.
If still no luck, start IE in no-Addons mode.
If still no luck post back and we can direct you to a MS Fixit that will do
a bit more than just reset your IE settings.
If setting your homepage to about
:blank works, then go Tools>Compatibility
View Settings and check "Include updated website lists from Microsoft".
If the no-Addons mode works then see this article for tips on
troubleshooting IE8 Addons issues.
The most common problem that ppl have is with incompatible IE Addons. You
may have an earlier version of the Google toolbar or the Skype addon
installed. Go to toolbar.google.com and skype.com for the latest updates to
these third-party products if they are installed.
