Windows 7: IE8 Won't even open

Thanks!

Hi All that have helped,
Just wanted to thank you all for your input.
I got IE8 to work, I started the computer is Safe Mode, and it worked so I knew there was nothing wrong with it, I then went through the processes one by one and eliminated them and eventually found out which one was causing IE8 to not open. I found it and all is good now.
Once again thanks!

Can you tell us what process was the cause?

Sure, I'm part of a nielsen survey that monitors your internet usage and in return you get gift vouchers. Its quite beneficial, already received $150 in vouchers. The program that they use prevented IE8 from opening and as soon as this process was stopped, IE8 started working. I just put the program on my other computer and all was good, get the benefits of IE8 while still getting the vouchers.

Thanks again for your help.

I have installed IE8 on about 30 comps since it came out and about 1/4 of them have connection issues after the update. Usually resetting the browser or reseting the IP stack does the trick.
