Explorer uses lots of cpu power

  fredyflame 19:56 26 Jan 2004

Could someone tell me why sometimes a web page uses over half my CPU power- seen on task manager and it will only close down through task manager, it can be any random web page with only that running.
I have p4 3ghz with expl 6 and xp pro

Is it a particular web page?

Check for spyware - Ad-aware click here and Spybot click here

Have you got anything else loaded eg. Word or windows media player, which waste cpu power?

No particular web page
I have adware 6
Nothing else running using any power-checked on task manager

Although AdAware picks up most things (and I use it myself) it's also worth running spybot and SpywareBlaster click here as well just to be sure.

And check for trojans click here and click here

Have run adaware, spybot and cleaner still the odd random explorer page is using 50% of cpu
