I have a Windows XP machine on our LAN, origianlly running IE7 and now IE8, javascript won't work even though Enable Active Scripting is enabled. I've disabled the Anti-Virus with no luck. Other PCs are fine. Any suggestions on what would cause this?

Have you disabled/uninstalled any addons/toolbars/extensions/accelerators etc ? They can cause issues, strange ones with upgraded versions. – Grizly Feb 24 '10 at 14:14

Try lowering the security level on IE8 maybe?

Try to reset your IE settings with Service->Additional-> Reset button.
