Forms Authentication Login not working in IE8 only

Hi
I have a simple website developed using Visual Web Developer and using forms Authentication. The login and authentication works perfect on IE6, IE7, Mozilla, Firefox and Chrome but not in IE8.

In IE8, the login page (default.aspx) when entering the correct login and password justs refreshes. When entering the wrong password, you get the incorrect username or password text.

There are similar questions to this posted, but not exactly so I haven't been able to resolve it.
I've deleted all cookies, temporary internet files etc and reset all IE settings with no joy.
Any help will be very much appreciated.

It is because of the new way the ie8 is handling the process model. You can
configure that by changing the registry. See the section "#4 : The IE 8
Process Model is Configurable" in below link. I hope this will help you.

Hi Gallitin
That document was useful in some ways but it didn't resolve the issue we were having. I have now changed to Windows Authentication and seems be be working in all browsers.

Thanks
