Windows 7: Asus 1201n very slow on internet browsing and certain tasks

I have just restarted my pc and loaded one single page on one single tab of IE and let it sit for 1/2hr. After this time, the iexplore.exe process was consuming 1.6gb of ram and growing.
This was also going on when opening IE without add-ons.

I then closed it down and loaded the exact same page on Chrome and it consumed about 200mb and stopped.

How do I fix this??... Everywhere I look everyone seems to point at add-ons and extensions as a problem, but it clearly is not my case. Given that IE is integrated into Windows and Explorer in particular, would I have a problem there...?

UPDATE:

I have now tried the exact same page loading on another Win 7 pc on IE 11. The iexplore.exe process took about 200mb of memory, similar to Chrome and then stopped, not like on my laptop climbing up to 1.6gb over 1/2hr.

I am pretty sure there is something wrong with my laptop... Any ideas on how to diagnose this?
