    when I try and click on the Favorites star to access my favorites, the drop
    down menu only flashes open for a half second and closes. I have to manually
    go into the Favorites menu on the tool bar to access my Favorites. This
    never happened until I upgraded to IE8. Suggestions?

  3. • Which version of the Windows operating system am I running?

    • Is my PC running the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows?

    Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2;
    Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2) as well as your current IE version when posting
    in an IE-specific forum or newsgroup. Please do so in your next reply.

    1. Does the behavior persist if you start IE in No Add-ons mode?

    2. Does the behavior persist if you Reset IE Advanced settings (RIES)?

    3. What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
    in the background when you installed IE8?

    4. Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this
    machine (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?
