IE 8 takes ages to open

IE 8 has started taking ages to open the first (home) page when I start it initially. During this time if I click on the browser it also crashes. So I have to leave it alone for 2 minutes, before I can start working on it.

I don't know about Deanpembo1986uk, but I'm using your version and everything is working well. Try, emptying your temp (cache) files. May one are more are corrupted.

I cleared the cache but it did not help. I am using Kaspersky Internet Security 2010. Is there a known issue with KIS and IE 8?

Have you tried disabling your add-ons, or starting without add-ons?

Start without add-ons:

Orb -> All programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Internet Explorer (No Addons)

It did opened up fast, but since there was no homepage to open in the 'no-addon' mode, I can not know why it is taking so long to open my homepages.
