I administer many Windows XP Pro SP 3 machines and have noticed something very bizarre happening over the past two weeks. Quite a few users started complaining that their machines were running slowly and upon further examination, I discovered that the culprit was iexplore.exe consuming approx 1,100,000 KB to 1,500,000 KB of memory under the processes tab in task manager. If you end the process, the issue goes away but eventually comes back in a few hours (maybe half a workday). These machines are running a mixture of IE 7 and IE 8. Does anyone have any clue about what to do from here? Thanks for the advice.
