MSN Homepage pegs CPU to 100% RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Windows Vista Home Premium with 2 monitors and IE 8.  My home page is www.msn.com.  Whenever I open msn.com the computer binds up and gets very slow.  I opened up task manager and found that the cpu usage is 100% and stays that way.  This is true whether it is one screen or two.  If I go to any other website the cpu usage drops into the low teens.  Is there something wrong with the MSN home page or do I have an option on the IE 8 making it do this?
    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Hi Mike,

    These types of issues are generally related to Flash ads that are not loading properly.  If you can send either a screen image of the page or let us know what ads are loading, we can ask the MSN.com team to investigate this.
