IEXPLORER.EXE process is using too much memory
Good Afternoon,

For some reason my computer keeps on been super slow when im on the internet. I checked the task manager and it has 3 IEXPLORER.EXE process 2 of them run no more than 20,000k but one of them uses up to 400 to 500k of memory i checked the page file usage history and it was close to 2GB of usage..

Thanks for all the help.
