Then your problem might not be AVG at all. As IE8 is so new it is highly likely that certain web sites you are visiting are just not compatible with IE8 yet. You indiicated some websites render OK for you and the problem is random. THAT is more likely the problem than your AVG.
Since Compatibility View feature didn't resolve, you might want to post an inquiry over on the MS IE8 forum for some help. MS MVP's or a very knowledgeable member will assist as soon as they can. It may just be a 3 day "coincidence" on the AVG efforts. You may just now
have gone to your first website that isn't compatible with IE8. Here's a link to the IE8 forum. BTW you have to have a MSN .net passport or Windows Live ID login to post there. But that is free (good on all .net/WindowsLive sites). Just click the Windows Live ID link on the Sign-In page to set up.http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsg...ng=en&cr=us
I read some posts over there that say Google Toolbar and Yahoo Toolbar can cause problems with IE8. If you have one of those, you could uninstall and see if that resolves.
Else, could you post a link or two to a couple of specific websites that won't render for you so I can try to go there and see if I get the same results? If it won't for me either, than I think this is the problem. I'd be happy to run that test for you.
