When I start IE8 for the first time from boot up, it shuts down on its own within ten seconds. I then reopen it and runs normally from there on.
I am running Windows Vista Home Premium.

Can anyone shed any light on this problem?

Close IE.
Go Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools, and click on Internet Explorer (no add-ons). Same problem?

Following your instructions, the problem has gone.
What do I do now to enable a normal start?

What addons have you installed? If it's fixed using no addons(aka safe mode), then it's a problem with one of your addons causing it.

Start IE normally and since you don't have much time, disable all add-ons quickly.

Restart IE.
Start enabling add-ons, BUT one by one, restarting IE each time until you'll find the culprit.

Main suspects - toolbars.
