This might help  ....   in IE8 ...Tools.. Compatibility view settings ....  check that the box is  ticked next to  ' Display All Websites in Compatibility View'  .....        :fingers:

Do you have Google desktop search installed by any chance?

The cure seems to be the one advised by kate to "Display all websites in compatibility view".
