A lot of people have a problem that when they start IE8 they will get a popup saying "Welcone to IE8" with Next and Ask Me Later buttons. My friend has this problem every 5 times she starts IE and I think I once clicked on Next and did the setup steps, but later the Welcome popup kept happening.

There are a lot of pages explaining how to get rid of the Welcome screen, by using the registry. I would rather not use the registry.

Does this mean that people went through the setup steps, but the Welcome screen keeps appearing anyway?

Or do people not even try to go through the steps and just want to get rid of the Welcome screen?

My friend just clicks on Ask Me Later and that's it.

Just go through it once. You won't see it again after that.

I think I did once, and it later came back.


By the way, have you seen it appear only the first time you start IE after booting?
Or does it appear after you closed and opened IE a few times?

I've never seen it more than the first time.

I know you don't want to mess with it, but the registry is probably the only real fix if it's not getting set correctly. You can easily backup and restore the registry, so there's not much to worry about.

It only appears the very first time I run it. I answer the questions, setup what I want, and then I never see it again.
