Sounds like either a corrupt User Profile or a corrupt system registry hive. If you create another account on the machine and log in there, do the problems persist?
AndyC, that is an interesting idea. I haven't tried that, but I think I will. I've got 6 profiles on this system. Mine seems to be the most adversely affected. However, my daughter, who is the only one that uses this PC a lot, also has a profile. She's logged into her profile several times and has had similar problems, although not as bad. For example, she can use her Outlook, but she's experiencing the same problems that I am with IE8 not coming up correctly, none of her Favorites work, etc.
So I'm wondering, is the only way to test your idea is to create a new profile? Or is it sufficient to know that the same thing is affecting another profile?
