IE8 stuck at start

hi,

I'm mostly using FF as my main browser.

whenever I open a URL with IE8, the page loads for ever without being open.

if I close the browser and it again, most of the time it works.

this also happens in a computer with only IE8 being installed (as main browser)...

I've formatted and reinstall Win7 on my PC several times, it always happens.

So I guess it's not a malware, or an incompatible add-on - or a matter of safe-mode or reset of the settings.

just to be clearer, the IE itself does load (not hanged), but the URL won't open...

The only other thing, if it's not an add-in, could be browser proxy auto-detection (wpad). Uncheck "automatically detect settings" in the connections option to see if that changes anything as well.

Try the IE (No Add ons) from the start menu and see what happens. :blushing:

all the times I've tested this it worked, but since it doesn't happen every time, I'm not sure this helped...

(although it might be)

this didn't help
