On xp-home using sbc/yahoo browser. The ybrowser.exe frequently uses all (98%) of my cpu usage, especially when playing on Pogo.com. I can not proceed untill the browser stops eating up all the cpu. Viewing the task manager it is always the same... ybrowser.exe I have not discovered any pattern to it's taking off and using most of the cpu. It will let go after a minit or so.

Playing online games on internet sites chews up some CPU usage. Does any browser take up all of that CPU usage, or only the yahoo browser?

I only use Yahoo browser which I believe runs with IE. My wife plays on the same site on her computer and has not had the same problem. Therefore I have to assume it is something that has to do with mine (both are e-machines) as how it is configured. It will on rare ocassion also take off while viewing other sites. What triggers it is beyond me, but is so frustrating.

Have you tried using an alternate browser? Such as FireFox?
