Internet Explorer 8 Problems with SharePoint

At DMC we make heavy use of Microsoft SharePoint in almost everything we do from project management to financial tracking. We use Excel Services to display real time key performance indicators.

Several of us in the office have recently updated to Internet Explorer 8. A couple of us have found a peculiar problem with IE8 and SharePoint pages with Excel Services. The problems include:

  1. Crash of IE when displaying any page that included Excel Services web parts.
  2. Crash of IE when displaying any SharePoint List in Explorer View.

Other notes: I am running Windows XP Service Pack 3 with IE 8 recently installed. Several of my coworkers are not having this problem.

I was able to completely eliminate these problems by uninstalling IE8 using Microsoft's procedure. Now my system has IE7 again, and SharePoint works again. I plan on reinstalling IE8 and seeing if the problems persist.

I will post updates as I find out more.
