You might want to try reinstalling or repairing your installation of IE 8, after which you probably should RESET
your IE settings.
Please try this and let us know if it makes any difference.
Since you asked,thought to let you know that i reinstalled İE8,but the problem on the 2 news sites continued as before.
Then i read somewhere that disabling unused Active X controls may be helpful,so i disabled ESET's Online Scanner's Active X Control
and lo and behold,since then said problem disappeared,together with the often overheated top and wildly thrashing fans!
So now my iexplore.exe is behaving as it should without hogging the cpu.
İt may be worth adding that the İE8 now offered for download by M/soft is far more stable than the earlier version,so anyone having problems,while still using the earlier release of İE8,
might consider reinstalling the current offering by M/soft.
I have been experiencing the same problems (running fans, overheated (bottom), AVG security informing me of overuse). I've also noticed I have less memory than I had before. So, I too have turned off things I don't use, but I have not re-installed I8 to try to fix these issues. So I'd like to know if you think it was the disabling of the Active X only that stopped it, or that AND the re-installation? When I get off from here, I'm going straight to look at any AX's I might have running, and stop them. But I'd like to know your opinion, since you did get it fixed. Thanks.
Well,the problems you are experiencing as above could be due to a number of things.
For example if your pc is a laptop,it may have collected dust and therefore may need to be cleaned.(thrashing fans)
Overheated bottom of laptop could occur if it is regularly rested on anything other than a desk
ie on your lap,or cushion.
Re AVG you may well have the AVG Search Toolbar,check if that is causing a problem.
Re:İE8,if yor copy is quite old,you may well benefit from reinstalling,
and some Active X's may be faulty,so checking them would be helpful.
Disconnect any Toolbars and Active X's you don't need to be running all the time
you can re enable them as you need them.
That's what i do with ESET'S Active X.
One last thing i found very useful is http://support.micro...com/fixit/en-us
it will check your system for specific problems and auto fix them.( İE8,Windows,Files and folders etc.)
