Did you try the reg fixes indicated at the bottom of the page I linked? Is the pop-up blocker turned off? Have you Reset all IE8 settings in the Tools menu?

I copied all the scrip into one reg file and ran it. Popup blocker is turned off, and I reset and restored all the settings in the tools menu.
