Problem : IE8 hangs when not using www. or http:// in address field.

If i run IE8 without addons it works as normal.

I have tryed disabling all add-ons manualy but IE8 hangs anyway.

IE8 is up to date. (100511)

Other addons are Acrobat Reader 9.3.2 addins, Flash 10 addins, java 6 addins and silverlight. So no special once really.

Iw tryed to reinstall IE8 but i feel it was just a time waste.


Any one got a clue what to do next
(Dont say use another browser thats not an option.)


IE8 runs on a Windows Xp pro machine thats have a totaly fresh install (2days ago)

Dont want to have problems with your computer?
Solution : install a good free anti virus, anti spyware & and stay away from misleading applications. Update your OS and vital programs as often as you can, to shut down those open security holes.
Stay away from shareware and trailware applications, avoid installing browser addins and toolbars. Read up on things before trying new applications.

You could try resetting IE8;

Tools / Internet Options / Advanced / Reset

Sorry to say but none of those fixes are relevant in this case.

What i need is away to either monitor what is happening as i get the error or a way for IE to report the add-on that is causing the application hang to event viewer.
