IE8 doesn't load pages

RE: IE8 doesn't load pages
Under the covers IE uses a shared WebBrowserControl component that is reusable (part of Microsoft's explanation of how IE is tied in with the OS). On top of that it adds a bunch of UI but all of the actual rendering, network stack, execution, etc is done by the shared WebBrowserControl (and the component is updated with each IE release).

pagetest.exe just embeds the control into a dedicated application that doesn't load any other browser extensions (and isn't called iexplore.exe so a lot of antivirus products don't try to mess with it). The actual page loading, rendering and executing all uses the same engine as the installed IE.

The only other path is to try removing other software installed until you can track down the conflict.
