Hope this is the right place to ask about this. I have XP, and use IE7, and have DSL, and basically don't have many problems with browsing the internet and whatnot, but I noticed when I went to Blockbuster.com the other day that after the page had loaded, I still couldn't grab the scrolling bar on the side of the window. It took what I thought was a long time, especially since the page had loaded. Anyway, for the heck of it, I opened task manager and saw the iexplore.exe was at 100%, and then would go to 0, then maybe 30%, back to 0, and maybe back to 95-100%.......you get the idea. What I thought was odd was that it seemed to frequently go to 100% or darn near when I'm not doing anything except sitting there looking at the task manager. I've noticed this same type of "not being able to navigate" for a minute or so at Amazon and Ebay also. My thinking is that they are just incredibly busy sites, but I still don't get the cpu usage jumping around like that well after the page is loaded, but then, I'm not a computer whiz, hence the question.I also went to the Computer Haven forum before this, and when I was trying to edit a message I had posted there, the cpu usage was so high, I was waiting for my backspace key to work to fix a typo!!! That seemed really ridiculous! I had task manager open while typing and was watching the iexplore.exe stay at 100% or darn near the entire time......really weird.

Hello Jim45,

I see that you have an HJT log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/182241/iexploreexe-showing-high-usage-well-after-a-page-is-loaded/

We do not allow more than one topic for the same computer and the same issue as this causes confusion, and in this case may make the disinfection process more difficult.

This leaves you with a choice:

1) Have this thread reopened and the HiJack This log topic deleted


2) Keep this thread closed and wait for assistance in the HiJack This log forum. Please note that that forum is VERY busy.

Please send a Private Message indicating your choice.

Assuming you wish assistance in the HiJack This forum, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
