Within the last week or so I've noticed Internet Explorer 8 is failing to launch quite frequently, requiring a PC restart to put it right (temporarily). This is gradually getting more frequent.
I've been using IE8 since it was on general release and got over the (many) problems with it stopping, failing to respond or freezing. Then had a trouble-free period, and now this has started!
The problem (on my Vista laptop, not on my XP desktop) is getting gradually worse.
I can click on ANY of the 3 or 4 icons relating to I.E.8 and nothing happens. Sometimes if I right click and select "Run as Administrator" it will launch, but as I'm the ONLY user and already using the Administrator account I'm unsure as to the cause of the problem.
One option would be uninstall IE8 and reinstall it (or something else), but how would I connect to the Internet to install another browser if I've uninstalled my web browser?
Oddly, there is NO sign of a problem in Event Viewer.
Any help/ideas, would be appreciated.
