Internet Explorer Problem - works fine in firefox

I am having problems with the Internet Explorer 8 on my Windows 7 computer. This is a new computer that I just purchased today, so it has a new install of Windows 7. It came with home premium and was upgraded to professional.

At first, everything worked fine. Now I am having problems. Here are some of the things that I have noticed stopped working:

GMAIL - Standard view will not load. - All I see is the google logo, search box and two buttons. The other things that are supposed to fade in never show up. Also, the search suggestions drop down box does not show up.

This all works fine in Firefox.

I have not made many changes to the computer. I did uninstall McAfee trial and installed Norton Security Suite. I tried uninstalling Norton and it still did the same thing.

I have tried resetting IE to default settings and clearing cache. These problems exist even if I create a new windows account and log in for the first time.
