Internet Explorer 8 keeps showing restore last session?


I have a problem with IE8...

It keeps showing the "restore last browsing session" window when i start it sometimes.

I have tried to turn it off in group policy editor and use the registry.

Neither have worked - it still keeps coming up.

any ideas?

Thank you

I was thinking the same thing. You may have a bad plugin (addon) in your browser. As Airbot suggested, try resetting your browser (disabling all addons), then run it like that for a while and see how it works. If it works fine, then enable one addon at a time until you can distinguish the bad addon. To reset your browser, go to tools>internet options>cick advanced then click reset. It is best to do this from control panel>internet options while your browser is closed. Then reopen the browser. Hope this helps. Try to stay away from all those toolbars.
