Hello Mlovelace,

You might see if resetting IE8 may be able to stop this for you.

Thanks Shawn,

I have reset it, but prefer to reboot, as I don't loose all my IE addons. BTW, I have build 7100, which seems to have many IE8 issues.

You're welcome Mike. If that stopped the problem, then it was one of the add-ons that most likely caused it. You can re-enable them one by one until you find the culprit.
