Suddenly the IE 8.0 installed on the weekend on Vista Bus. sp. 1 stopped starting.
It doesn't start under power user, nor domain admin account.
The same behaviour I noticed on our Terminal Server 2008.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
I did reset IE through Control Panel / IE Options / Advanced.
I deleted browsing history through starting with no add-ons through Start / Accessories / System .
None works.
Thank you.
