Hi can anybody help with following, since installing SP2on my vista ultimate machine its been a nightmare with 100 percent cpu usage the only way i got round this before was to uninstall the whole SP. Just put sp2 on today again and CPU still at 100 any ideas. Its took me ages to even write this

Look in Task Manager and see which application is using all the CPU power.

I am aware of others experiencing the same problem and they have found it is Internet Explorer 8.

They have resolved it by reverting to IE7.

Got the same problem. 1 ie page will suddenly shoot up to 40+% even though nothing seems to be going on, other progams also do this and everything grinds to a halt

13 Microsoft updates scheduled for Tuesday night.
Maybe better waiting to see if they clear up the problem.
