    Hi
    ==
    (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...

    Help

    Hi,

    See if a browser add-on or other third-party program is causing this.

    For troubleshooting information see:

    2. If the behavior is not caused by an add-on, look for a third-party
    program
    as the cause.

    If this is not caused by a legitimate program, you may need to search more
    thoroughly for malware.
    Visit one of these sites, register and follow the protocol.
