IE hanging on some sites
This is a problem I have been dealing with unsucessfully for a while. When I am browsing, some websites will cause IE to start going REALLY slow. If I check the taskmanager, it shows that IE is using 100% of the processor. As soon as I close IE the processor usage returns to normal. This only happens on some sites, like www.newegg.com and I recently noticed another. I have installed firefox and it does not have this problem. Pretty much have no idea what could be causing this. Any advice is welcome, TIA!

You could (re)install IE SP 1, reinstall IE, try spyware blaster.

did you try dumping the cookies, temp folders, and so on? Did you try resetting the IE settings in tools/internet options/programs/reset websettings?
2% chance it is a corrupt hosts file. Could also be wacky firewall settings... but then firefox probably wouldn't work...
Might be spyware or adware... check egghead's thread...
