This problem keeps re-occurring: (On my Dell 4600/XP SP-2) I will have a few
IE 6 browser windows open, then usually one of them will freeze, then CPU
usage spikes to 100% - causing the computer to take several minutes to
perform the simplest operations. I usually have to (wait for) the task
manager to open so I can close out of IE – although often, the problem is
still there so I have to reboot the system. I have been trying in-vein for
months to correct this.

I have Spybot, Ad-aware, HJT, Awido, Spywareblaster, SpywareGuard, My
computer is protected by CA eTrust security suite, I have cleaned, error
detected & defragged the HD several times. I tried to update the (scripting engine 5.6) as someone suggested - but then I was experiencing other problems and had to use System Restore – so I’m not sure of the status of it now. Run sfc /scannow… Deleated TIF and reduced it’s size to 50 MB, reduced hardware acceleration (also my video driver is up-to-date)
Nothing works!

Here are some forum links to what I have tried:

As far as I can tell, with all of the scans, cleanings, and deletions, my
machine is free of viruses and spyware & maleware. Can anyone fix this?
