    I've had this LT (Lenovo T410) for a couple of years. I usually use Firefox but had an occasion to want to use IE. The page opened but wouldn't open to my home page. Tried another site, same thing. I went back to Firefox and it opened to my home page w/o a problem. I've erased cookies and browser history already. Tried entering using Start, Run w/o satisfactory results. Any ideas?

    Unfortunately, a lot of websites are already :)confused:) not supporting IE8 anymore. On my computer, some sites won't even open or work properly in IE8, but do run perfectly in Firefox.

    Have you tried running IE8 without add-ons, temporarily, as a test?
