Not exactly sure this is what you are asking...but if you are saying that links do not open in IE8 try following these steps to solve the issue:
Use the run command by typing "Run" in the Start Search Menu. > Type
"DCOMCNFG" to open up the Component services >
Expand 'component services' and 'computers' and right hand click on 'properties' (this will open the properties for My Computer) > click on "Default Properties" Ensure that Default Authentication Level is "Connect" and Default Impersonation Level is "Identify"
If opening links is not the problem you are experiencing, please let us know so we can more accurately help you. :)
