why is internet explorer using so much memory

Sometimes you may feel that your computer has hung or has frozen, when you are trying to open a webpage or even whilePbrowsing normally. This may either be a site problem or the problem could be high memory usage by Internet Explorer. If the problem relates to a specific website, there is nothing we can do. However, if it is high memory usage by Internet Explorer, due to certain reasons, you may receive a
High memory usage by Internet Explorer warning. I will explain below how you can fix it using one of thePfollowing methods. Is It An Add-On? Most of the times, it is one or more of the Internet Explorer add-ons that cause high memory usage problems. When you face this problem, your computer is almost hung and takes too much time to respond to any click or keyboard actions. To know if it is an add-on problem,. To start IE without add-ons, Open Start Menu, Click All Programs, Expand the Accessories folder, Expand System Tools folder, If you can browse easily without freezing, the problem lies with one or the other add-on. You now need to isolate the add-on. To isolate the add-on that is creating problem, Once you find the add-on that is creating the problem, disable it in the Manage Add-Ons window. This should fix the problem of Internet Explorer having high memory usage.


It is a good idea to regularly. Is It Your Home Page? In some cases, you may have a home page that is graphic intensive. By graphics, I mean both still and videos. In addition, if your home page has too many components including ads from a range of advertisers, the page takes too much time to load. This can be confused with Internet Explorer high memory usage, but actually it is the web page or some java script load time that is consuming your time which may end up freezing your Internet Explorer. Open the web page in other browsers and see if it takes too much time to load. If yes, then the problem is not with Internet Explorer but with the webpage. Switch to a lighter version of page or better still, remove it as home page and access it through bookmarks/favorites when you want to visit it. Too Many Open Tabs? Do you often open too many tabs in a single Internet Explorer window? Tabbed browsing is good only until a few tabs. If you have, say, eight or ninePtabs open in the same window, Internet Explorer or any other browser for that matter may become unstable. You can check out the Task Manager to see the different Pprocesses running at the same time. While you are on the Task Manager, check out the memory usage of each process by opening and closing new tabs.


You will find even an empty tab, in addition to the eight already opened, takes up a substantial amount of memory. The best would be to close unwanted tabs. If you wish to go back to certain page in recent future, press CTRL+D to favorite the page. Alternatively, drag the tab to the Windows taskbar to pin it. Running the. is also an option you may want to consider. It will identify and automatically fix any performance issues which your Internet Explorer may be facing. This explains the high memory usage in Internet Explorer. If you wish to add anything, please drop a line below. Go here if your frequently. I had this problem, too. And now it is STILL not 100% resolved, BUT: b) Explorer. exe is disturbed by the problems with the DirectX. Explorer. exe is a COMPONENT of the Internet Explorer, so try to go back to IE that is embedded in Windows Vista/7/8. That brings the Explorer. exe back to normal and LOWERS the DirectX -number in the Registry. That "going-back" can be achived by "Update/ installed updates = deinstall IE 11" direct there in the list -you know the rest. c) Restart the PC and so on-- and after that try to install DirectX offline June-2010 redist /dowload from Microsoft. e) Task Manager (Ctrl + Alt + Del) = Processes = explorer. exe = stop it / down-right on the screen "End process" Go to Task Manager in the same session and look for "Aplications = "New Task. " again down-right there Write Explorer. exe there and reactivate the Explorer. exe.


If you still have some problems, see the resources from the ATI or nVidia (special this f* nVidia! ), mouse and sound. Always problems when the USBs share the IRQs whit the grafic or sound. For such "collided resources" are other advisors on Net that have already resolved these things. I hope it brings the computer some 99% back to normal. BUT THE BEST SOLUTION would be "Happy Uninstall 6. 25" that takes out DirectX and reinstall it without the help of my "list" up here :-) (Well who has the money, can do it. The Happy Uninstall under 5. * are no help, because they cannot resolve something else except XP and let the fingers from the so called crack-pages: there are only Happy Uninstall-offers from some pigs that try to plant you their private downloaders with the usual garbage: Conduit the same) I hope all this it helps you, till you find a programmer with a better solution than. "do a clean reinstall of Windows" :-)) Regards from a poor lamer, as you see
