    New one for me...

    Running IE8 (hate IE9...been there, done that...not an option), and my processor meter runs at max for 5-10 minutes after opening a new page. Browser functionality is slow and often-times very erratic, and commands won't complete without errors when this is happening. The browser acts like it's constantly trying to load new data, and clicking the red X button to stop loading does absalutely nothing. Posting is challenging sometimes, at best.

    I can go on numerous other sites that I visit regularly and don't see this problem, as long as I don't have a browser tab (or several) with SMF open.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    LOL.. I have had mine pop up a few times to tell me I was at high usage and I've only had this website open with nothing else running...

    I switched to Google Chrome and none of the problems with IE-anything.

    I'M BACK!!! Just uploaded firefox, did the upgrade to 8.0.1 and imported my bookmarks from IE8...took about 5 or 6 minutes, including re-learning the bookmarks and toolbar layout of firefox, 'cuz I haven't used it for a few years.

    But...dang!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's like a whole new computer now!!! Pages open far enough to start viewing in about 1/2 a second, where IE8 takes 30-60 seconds and I couldn't do much of anything while I waited for them to load, either. I'm sold!!!! I forgot how good it could be! Saying good-bye to IE8 right now...

    Thanks a ton fellas!!!!!!

    I did that a few years back, Eric.  I also changed my e-mail from msn to gmail.  My msn inbox was constantly full of junk and spam.  Very little of that on gmail.  Glad you found the fix.
