Can you duplicate this issue with an alternative browser? Or is the issue only with IE8?

try regsvr32 actxprxy.dll
check your addon, make sure there is nothing loaded that may be causing this. Google toolbar perhaps?
Go to download.microsoft.com and search for internet explorer 8, download the exe and reinstall the browser.
