windows 7 IE 8 High cpu usage 100%

I have windows 7, for some reason the ie8 is usually always 100% cpu usage.
I tried system restore, tried resetting the browser to default, removed any add ons or pluggins and disabled everything else. Even tried loading without add on an compatibility mode. It runs slow and lags badly. Firefox is fine.
Ie8 ran great for the first week then just got slow. Even if im doing nothing with ie8 the cpu usage will be high

Mine only jumps crazy high after I try to open a couple of tabs- if I remain on a single tab it behaves.

Then again, I only use it to play games on zone.msn.com, and that only needs a single tab - the games open a new window....

Very high CPU usage, causing very high laptop CPU temps (90c idle)
This problem began yesterday. I noticed my CPU was at 90C constantly with very high CPU usage (>50%). I had no major programs running. I rebooted several times and the program persisted. 1. I went into safe mode and everything was normal. So this rules out hardware issues. 2. I reformatted and...

Windows 7 random CPU usage and high physical memory usage!!!
Ok, I am literally KILLING myself over this! I installed Windows 7 64Bit over XP around a month ago and it was so good that I recommended it to my brother who was previously on XP too. We got him a copy of the 32bit version as he has only 2gb of memory, and he installed it on his machine....
