IEXPLORE.EXE uses excessive CPU
by PaulPi - 6/21/07 7:08 AM
I'm running XP pro w/sv pk 2, Dell Dimension 3000, 2.8 Gh, 512 MB Ram. Computer works fast and well using IE after startup but then slows as surfing and printing progresses. Can hear hard drive working harder and Task Mgr shows IEXPLORE.EXE using 100% of CPU usage in cycles, especially when opening aol webmail, and when printing from browser using HP Laserjet 1100. PF usage which is generally around 300 mb until cycling starts spikes to 430-468. Help!
