Cant add configurable item to cart in IE8

I have recently finished a project using Magento, and everything seems to be ok - there is one MAJOR issue though - users cant add an item to the cart in IE8 - it just says:

“Please specify the product option(s)”

I have made one alteration to the product page - removed the first dropdown option (’choose from’). It seems to work in every other browser (including IE6!!) but not in IE8.

I have tracked down the problem to the fact that no form parameters are being submitted in the POST request, when add to cart is clicked - but I just cant find out why.

Ive spent about 70hours trying to figure this out (yes, it really is that bad!), any help would be appreciated.  downer
