When I use Internet explorer my CPU usage most times runs at 100%, this is the figurejust after booting up and before I surf the net but just been on to say one web site, After I close the website the CPU tends to stay at 100% until I go into `task manager` and shut down Iexplorer. It then returns to something like 2%. Using this forum has had it peak at 100% on several ocassions. Is this normal? If not what can I do as it slows my PC down. thanks

Hi scudo, What operating system are you running? You do not say in your profile which would be helpful if you did :whistling: . Have you cleaned out the dust bunnies from your tower? Dust can cause the problem you are having amongst many other issues, but let us start with dust cleaning. kind regards,

Hi scudo,

I am sorry I forgot to post how to clean out the dustbunnies.

Once a month is mandatory for maintenance me thinks.

Let us know how you go,

best regards,

Sounds like one of the Add-ons is causing problems. Try disabling all of them and see if that helps. If yes, then enable the a few at a time till you find the culprit. You do this via Tools / Manage Add-ons.
