You could try disabling your IE8 add-ons then re-enable them one at a time to try and track down if any are causing the problem.

That said, have you considered upgrading to IE9?

To be honest it's probably a browser issue, at least as far as my own experience goes. Try upgrading to Internet Explorer 9 or switching to another popular browser such as Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari or Opera. I could never get IE8 to stop failing to respond, but someone else may be able to help you if you really don't want to switch browsers (:

cocod2 Upgrading to another browser really is quite painless and doesn't take much time, if you're going to change eventually you might as well do it now (: Anyway, try reading through this article on managing IE7 and IE8 addons.

I have had IE 8 for a long time and about a month ago I started getting that problem. I tend to think it must be an update that has caused it.
