      Try running Malwarebytes, just in case you have a Trojan which is stopping your page loading.

      Re: ie 8 drops homepage

      I get you now, it looks like a corruption in IE8. Try running IE in 'Safe Mode' without Add-ons. Like Firefox most of the problems come from add ons and not the basic browser. Open a Command Prompt and type iexplore –extoff hit enter. If the problem goes away start normally, go to Manage Add-ons in the Tools menu disable them all then re-enable them one at a time till you find the culprit.
      Or you could try going to Tools> Internet Options>Advanced tab and click the Reset button at the bottom. This would mean you have to install all your add ons from scratch.
