IE 9 is the main problem unfortunately. And unfortunately as well when allowing a fresh Windows install to check for updates IE 9 replaces IE 8 faster then greased lightning before you can uncheck that particular item! IE 10 looks a bit better however as far as IE is concerned.

But I still preferred IE 8 but now had to go with an alternative browser due to the constant freeze ups IE 9 was running into back a year ago. You can run bug sweepers all day long and won't find a thing but still are experiencing IE 9 the way it is!

2 iexplore.exe processes with 1 window open?
Is everyone's task manager showing it like this? Why 2 processes? 1 just to have it open and another for each webpage being displayed? Is this faster/better or something? Anyone know of a reason behind this?
