Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

IE 8 bails out whenever it must wait a little. The timeout is not much, just a few seconds. I have it in my office on Windows XP, and at home on Vista SP2.
This makes it almost impossible to use IE 8 for anything at all. It happens when my online bank is slow, and it especially happens when I work  in Visual Studio and set a breakpoint, which I do all the time. I am a professional programmer.
For my online bank, I have started to use Firefox, which waits until the response comes from the bank. But for my daily work, programming in Visual Studio, this is a major problem.

Whenever I search for a solution, I get tons of advices about anti virus apps probably interfering and so on. But, the problem is that IE8 is not patient enough!! It bails out whenever it has to wait more than  a few seconds, regardless.

To be able to work in Visual Studio, I must find a solution to this, any ideas?

Sounds like the bailing out is because it hits certain kind of documents and it cannot handle it or lack the parser to handle it. The only way is to "reinstall" the IE or upgrade to ie9 beta to see if it can solve the issue.

I doubt this, and I do not want to install any beta because it is important that my development environment is standard (our customers will not use IE9 beta).
The document in question is a blank Default.aspx page, with a breakpoint set on the Page_Load event.
Then IE8 bails out after 9 seconds. In fact, it bails out before it has gotten any data from the server at all. When setting a breakpoint on Page_Load, the response is not sent to the browser from the server at all, so whether IE8 is picky about the .Net document or not is no topic, it has no doc to consider at all. It drops out bacuse it can't wait more than 9 seconds.

Try a master reset of IE.
Tools, Internet Options, Advanced Tab, Reset

I will not reset before I know what I am resetting. If something is being reset that will solve this; I would reather know what it is! I am not the only one, searching the net gives many hits, unfortunately no usable solutions. That's why I ask the experts.

All you are doing is setting IE back to it's defaults.
In order to find out what is causing you this problem, you need to take your unit to a proffessional that is able to monitor the system while this is happening, which is likely to be expensive and even then you may not get an answer.
You have to bear in mind that Microsoft keep all their code secret and are not going to pass it on to any old repair agent.
Also, it may not be IE that is causing the issue. It might be anything from your TCIP stack throug to your Network card (NIC)
As a programmer, you might want to use Visual Studio to debug the application. BUt that is beyond my knowledge and I would presume you have already looked at that.
If you think it is a programming issue, maybe the solution would be to ask in that forum as opposed to this one.
Sorry I can't help further.

Hi everybody,

I wonder why I get suggestions on fixing server side issues, when i in my previous post wrote that tehre are no such. The problem arises when the server does not respond within 9 seconds. It happens if my online bank is slow, when the railways booking system is slow, when Amazon is slow processing my book order, and whe I debug in Visual Studio.

In the mean time, I found the solution. Man, how much work I put into finding this, when the solution is so simple:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ReceiveTimeout
The value was 10000 (ten seconds), which explains why I got 9 seconds before bailout all the time. I set it to 8 minutes. Case closed.
