This has been occurring in the past 2 or 3 weeks. With Internet Explorer (7) on, after awhile its memory usage (as seen in Windows Task Manager) just gets larger and larger until it finally locks up, at which time it's not even possible to view Task Manager any more in order to end its process or shut the application.
I notice that when I first open IE7, it seems to hover around 120 - 130 mb of memory, this with 2 tab windows open. Compare to Firefox with about 80mb, 3 tabs open. Last night after it had been open a few hours, it was up over 370mb.
So first, I'm not sure if the 120-130 mb it uses at first is normal. So this part I'm not sure is a problem or not.
Next, the increase in memory over time really appears to be out of the ordinary, and this really seems like it's a problem.
What is going on here? I didn't seem to have this problem before. Not sure how to fix it.
Any info or help appreciated.
