Threaded View

I have iexplore.exe twice in task-manager and one uses the half CPU.

Thereby only one window is open with a blank site.
If I open two windows, I become four iexplore.exe and CPU is working 100%.

If I close the window, it doesn't disappear.

What is it? And how I can solve this problem?

Comodo Firewall Diagnose and Avira AntiVir don't find anything.

Can somebody help me please?

Hi, ie 8 has problems, if you're using that version try going back to 7,

Re: Problem with iexplore.exe


Try running IE with add-ons disabled

*** If you are running IE6: ***
Start > Control Panel > Internet Options > Advanced (tab) > UNCHECK "Enable
third-party browser extensions" > OK

Run IE6 now.

If it works now, one of your add-ons is causing the problem. Start Internet
Explorer as normal, Tools, Manage Add-ons, Enable or Disable Add-ons.

Disable all the add-ons. Enable third-party browser extensions in Internet

Restart your browser and enable the add-ons one by one till the problem
appears and you get the culprit.

*** If you are running IE7 ***
Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools >
Internet Explorer 7 (No Add-ons) to start without any add-ons. Try using the
browser and see if the same problem arises.

If the problem does not occur again, start IE7 normally, go to Tools >
Manage Add-ons and disable all the add-ons. Enable each add-on one at each
time, restart and see if the problem occurs again. Once  it occurs again
enabling an add-on, you have nailed the culprit.

(if the menu bar does not appear, hit the Alt key on the keyboard)

Tank you,

the SUPERAntiSpyware Scan has helped me. I don't have problems now.

SUPERAntiSpyware has deleted few Adware.Tracking Cookie.

Are they dangerous? Should I reinstall my system?

Re: Problem with iexplore.exe


If SuperAntiSpyware deleted only adware tracking cookies, it is unlikely
that the problem is resolved. Adware cookies are placed by ad serving
servers to track the sites you visit and serve more relevant ads to you.

They can only track you if the website uses their ad services. Some consider
it as a privacy intrusion hence they are identified as 'adware tracking'
