    Using 32-bit vista, I have email and access to internet via mozilla. I was using an administrator account and all was working fine, but was advised for security reasons not to log onto administrator for regular use. So I made a new administrator account and converted my existing account into a standard user account.

    As a result, ie8 works only in the new administrator account. When I log into my standard user account, and attempt to open ie8, the cursor cycles for a few moments and then nothing happens. I tried opening without add-ons, same result.

    I logged onto administrator account and uninstalled ie8 (reverts to ie7), and ran registry cleaner to remove traces of ie8. Ie7 works on both administrator and standard user accounts. So I reinstalled ie8 and same problem, ie8 won't load in standard user account.
