I have had issues with IE 8 forever. I heard that IE 9 Beta was pretty fast, though, so I thought it might solve my problems. However, it didn't (Attached are Task Manager screenshots, one for normal and one for IE). I know from using a friend's laptop that IE 8 shouldn't use that much of my PC's resources! Any ideas on how to lower the ridiculous amount of CPU usage and memory IE takes up?

I have Windows Vista SP2.

Download Process Explorer: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx
Unzip ProcessExplorer.zip, and double click on procexp.exe to run the program.
Click on View > Select Colunms.
In addition to already pre-selected options, make sure, the Command Line is selected, and press OK.
Go File>Save As, and save the report as Procexp.txt.
Attach the file to your next reply.

Here is the txt file. I'm not sure the Safari one was needed, but I happened to be using Safari while reading the directions, and then tried it with IE.

System Idle Process (CPU NOT used) is listed at 84.56% - normal.
Fire up IE (if you say, it's causing problems) and post fresh PE log.

Here it is. I wonder if that Skype add-on I turned off when IE 9 suggested I turn off add-ons was behind all this...? Now IE seems fine, other than having issues because it's a Beta.

What's killing your CPU is this:
ccSvcHst.exe 49.23%
That would be Norton.

I suggest, you reinstall it, or get rid of it altogether and switch to something lighter, like Avast, or Avira.
