    Almost always when I open a particular web page with IE7 I find it grabs up
    to 50% my CPU and continues to do so for as long as the page is displayed.
    The only url I detect this happening with is this one:

    Process Monitor from sysinternals shows that all the time this page is
    displayed on my pc, iexplore is constantly opening and querying a sequence of
    Registry Keys - I don't know enough about the registry to be able to
    interpret it, but I'm sure it shouldn't be happening!

    I've put a sample log from ProcMon covering just a couple of seconds up here:

    You'll see that it's gone into a sort of loop, constantly repeating the same
    sequence of actions. If anyone could have a look and tell me why, whether
    there's anything about the url that's triggering it [doesn't hapen with
    Firefox], and whether there's anything I can do to stop it, I'd be really

    Just as a note, I have not been able to run IE7 with the new Phishing Filter
    at all, and I have not had it on since installing.
