Hello PotatoMan,

You may have some add-on interfering with this. See if resetting IE8 may help.

Hope this helps,

Yeah lol, I was actually ahead of ya, thanks though. I think after reinstalling the OS there were some interferences in personal settings of IE8. Did a Reset in the Advanced tab and it fixed it right up!
