|The memory in your PC might be faulty. That is, the physical hardware inside your computer called RAM. Errors like this often occur because of faulty memory.|
You can run a program called memtest to test if the memory is OK or not.
As a work-around to the issue, you could just use a different Web browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. IE 8 is slower and less secure than these in most cases anyway.
Some other ideas: Run Windows Update, and run chkdsk.
I hope at least one of these solutions helps you.
