    (XP SP3).

    My iexplorer.exe task takes more then 50% cpu and more then 100,000 k of Mem
    Usage !!!
    But .... it happens to me mostly when a flash element is being used... if
    I'm in internet sites that do not use flash the cpu becomes normal but still
    the 100,000 k of Mem Usage is there.

    I've all ready tries lot's of action that were recommended in many forums:
    Running SPYBOT, ADAWARE, Malwarebytes, AVG, HijackThis ...

    And ... all the same...
