    Just today IE 8 would no longer open the home page (or any other website). I
    removed IE 8 and went back to IE 7 and problem is the same.

    (Also using Outlook (which works fine) when clicking on a hyperlink to a web
    address then Outlook hangs too)

    I've tried resetting the internet options, also restoring system to earlier
    in the week, but all make no difference.

    Lastly I'm using XP.

    Advice eagerly welcomed!

    Running Vista Home Premium SP2, 2 GB of RAM, IE or Firefox.

    I've had similar problems with my system so I read this thread and then
    looked in the link you provided regarding troubleshooting IE (Tips for
    solving problems with IE708). The only problem is the link has bogus
    information because inside of Control panel when you do a search on
    `Troubleshooter' Windows has nothing like that. Just thought you should
    know. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I don't think so .

    Here's a portion of what's inside the link: `Open the Internet Explorer
    Performance troubleshooter by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start
    button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type
    troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting. Click View all, and then
    click Internet Explorer Performance'.

    Typing `troubleshooter' reveals exactly nothing...............Paul C.
