Help?

Why is it that when I am on Internet Explorer that my CPU Load is at 100%. When I go to the task manager processes, it shows that IE is at 100%. Can anyone tell me what is going on?

No my comp isn't slow. It just started it today. I have virus protection that scans everyday. I haven't been to any other website other than the ones I normally go to.

Weird...what antivirus software do you use? Make sure it takes care of Spyware/Malware as well as virii(sp?). It never hurts to run a secondary sweep with another program either.

My PC up here at work does the same thing with IE...but it's because it's slow as shit...I wasn't trying to take a stab at your rig or anything.

I have Trend Micro Antivirus. I will download that and see if it helps. Thanks for the help. I will let you know if it finds anything.

There are a number of websites that show others having similar problems. I'm betting there are some less drastic solutions than reinstalling your OS out there.

Here's a google search
