Lately I have been having the same strange problem on 2 different machines at 2 different locations. On Msn.com and only on Msn.com my cpu usage soars to 100% and my page file usage increases from about 250 to over 1gb on one of the machines in under a minute. Of course this causes the computer to freeze up and the only way to escape is to terminate iexplore in task manager. Any ideas as to why this could be happening?
I only have IE for a browser so could not try another. Everything is fine today on both machines. PF barely moves no matter how long I leave the page open. Only thing I can think of is that something in the content on the page was the cause. There was an obnoxious ad for walmart at the time which had a lot of action in it (flash) I believe it is called. I use MSN as my home page so I can keep up with the markets and news at work. Thanks for the response. I appreciate it. Bluejay
