Internet Explorer Slow Tab Opening

Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, 2 GHz / 4093 MB
I have just installed IE 8 on my laptop. The most frustrating problem is that everytime I try to right-click on a hyperlink and select "Open in New Tab" IE freezes for about 10 seconds and then the new tab appears. This problem has not occured in IE 7 where opening tabs was a breeze.

Also, opening blank new tabs is quick. The problem only occurs when I try it on a hyperlink.

I suspect it might be a problem with Spybot SD I want to see if anyone else has encountered the same problem.
