Hi there,

My wife's laptop works fine until we start up Internet Explorer, then it just freezes. I am able to get Taskmanager open and see that CPU usage spikes to more than 90% when I run it and subsequently drops down to a reasonable number once I kill it.

I've run Malwarebytes and have AVG both show no problems. I've even disabled both to ensure they aren't the source of my problem and they are not. It's directly tied to use of iexplore.exe.

I did a diskclean-up without any impact so any advice is appreciated.

I was fully expecting a long reply full of jargon and complex commands so when I saw you reply I was thinkg "Yah, right" but now the resonse is "Yah! Right!" :) Don't know what it did but it seems to have fixed the mystery and my wife will once again believe I walk on water (it is winter here). chuckles

Thanks Terry(y)
