IE8 is buggy RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I'm still running IE8, but recently it's become very buggy. When I click on a website, it will at times bring up two or three duplicate copies; when I exit a website, it will do the same (sometimes 4-5 new tabs); when I use the slider to move a page, it either sticks or minimizes the page; when I use the cursor to move the position of a window on the screen, it will maximize the page instead of moving it; when I reply to a message in OE, duplicate reply boxes will pop up; etc.

    Various scans (including a full Microsoft scan) reveal no viruses or malware. These occurrences do not happen in Firefox.

    My question is: if I reset IE in the Tools menu, will this solve the problem? Will it wipe out my archive of OE messages (those unsaved on the hard drive)? Or are there any other fixes?

    Thanks.
