IE8 not responding to quick launch

    If I start Internet Explorer 8 (using ms XP) using the icon in the 'Start
    Menu' it starts up straight away.

    If I start it by using an icon i have placed on the desktop, or an icon I
    have placed as a quick launch in the taskbar; it now takes at least two
    minutes to load and usually freezes the computer.

    The only thing I have done recently was to uninstall Spybot, as I learnt
    this can cause hangups with IE8. After doing this IE8 load up time
    improved.

    Any idea why this has now developed? I would like to change it as I find it
    easier to use the quick launch icon, but have no idea how to remedy the
    situation. Grateful for advice, thanks.
