IE7/Vista Bug - Slow scrolling, 100% CPU usage on particular site

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Matthew Douglass, Sep 11, 2006.

  1. Hey just wondering if anyone else is seeing this problem as well. When I
    browse to http://www.mind-control.com/orbital/projects.php using IE7/Vista
    RC1 I am barely able to scroll the page (maybe 100px per 15secs) and the CPU
    usage spikes to 100%. Does anyone else have this problem on this site? I
    don't with previous versions of IE or Firefox so I'm a bit confused by it.
    Thanks,
    Matthew

    I see painfully slow scrolling with IE7 RC1 under XP Pro and much speedier
    scrolling with Firefox (on this PIII 1GHz box). Odds are you have something
    much more powerfull.... ?

  3. Thanks for checking on that -- guess it is IE7 on all platforms that has
    issues with this page then. Now to figure out what's doing it.

    Hi Mat,

    The site is slow for me also, though just tolerable. However I can speed up
    the page by "Ignore colors specified on web pages" in Internet Options to
    remove the rather large background image that the site uses. As the
    background is fixed and so should not affect scrolling, you may be right
    about IE7's handling of scrolling, alternatively one could argue its a site
    design issue and that the responsibility lies with the developers to test
    their site on all browsers.

    Regards.

    many times, turning off some of the add ons can speed it up.
    I turned off internet connection help & diagnose connection problems & it
    helped quite a bit.
    MS threw the kitchen sink at this thing, but it bounced off & landed on the
    user's toes.
    Welcome to the Microsoft rendition of the Edsel.
