    Thanks for the link,

    I have Spybot L&G w/immunization & no addons.

    I won't let my customers disable this feature as I consider Spybot S&D an indispensable asset and can't allow upgrading to IE8 until fixed.

    Any news on when IE8 Development will cease causing this debilitating delay?


    PS - I saw a lot of grips about cpu hogging issue during Beta and waited until you guys said it was gone to download - but I guess the issue is still open.
    I didn't install ie8 till last week.

    For what you post, I'd say that Microsoft couldn't care less about it. At least, if they were indeed concerned about this, then I'm sure they'd tell you they're trying to solve it. Unless, they want to surprise people? (Yes, I'm being sarcastic...)

    For Microsoft, the culprit is Spybot - Search & Destroy, when it is not. The problem is that the final version of IE 8 doesn't handle many entries very well.

    But, the RC version didn't have this problem.
