On some websites the laptop computer (HPG72, Windows Vista) becomes VERY slow - especially when scrolling the pages.  For example:  www.dailymail.co.uk.  When I open task master, I see a single "iexplore.exe" and multiple "iexplore.exe*32" entries, and note the amount of power that is being used up.  Is this a serious issue, and how can I avoid this?  Thanks.

Each process for iexplorer.exe*32 is for each tab you have opened.

Please perform the following, so that we can get the exact specs of your computer. This will better assist us in helping you more.

Publish a Snapshot using Speccy

The below is for those who cannot get online

Please take caution when attaching a text file to your post if you cannot copy/paste the link to your post, you will need to edit it to make sure that your Windows Key is not present.

The above will let us know how many iexplorers there are when this issue arises.

Thanks for the reply.  I did not have multiple tabs open.  When I attempt to close one of the iexplore.exe*32 items, it immediately repopulates.

Do not understand.  I downloaded Speccy and copied the results from the window into my post.  What else?  I don't see why anyone would need my computer specs to answer the "multi iexplore.exe" question.  Thanks.

In the tutorial listed above it strictly says to publish the link to the speccy report that is generated via Publish Snapshot from the FIle Menu.

 

The specs of your PC are important, as it would let us see your computer as it currently is running with multiple ie's open and then we can better assist you.
