Default IE6 (XP SP2) hangs all apps (100% CPU) on each page load

At first I thought it was just eBay being busy but I opened Task
Manager and watched iexplore.exe jump up into the high 90s each time I
wanted to eother reload a page or surf somewhere else. I run AdAware
and Spybot at least weekly, and have disabled most of the Add-Ons in
IE. This has been going on a long time and is of course negating the
whole DSL thing, it is taking some pages up to a minute to load,
during which time I get the white-rectangle "not responding" icon and
anything else I may be doing on the computer hangs as well while IE
eats up the CPU, then it drops back suddenly. Anything else I should
be looking for? Any help appreciated.

That could be an indicator that BHO's are busy doing something each time IE
loads, an new IE window open, etc.

Get and use a tool that'll let you browse your list of BHO's and installed
activex objects.
Uninstall any that you can do without or that you don't remember installing
intentionally.

Thank you - what programs would this include? Or should I run a
HijackThis log?

Just don't post the HJ logs here - there are a zillion on-line HJ forums
specifically supporting the posting of HJ logs. It's against the groups
charter to post HJ logs.


This does not answer my question. I asked whether I should run a HJ
log or not in this instance based on the problem I'm having.

If anyone has any constructive help to offer I would appreciate it,
thank you.

The links Leythos lists in his reply further down are good.
I've never used HijackThis, so i couldn't recomend much from its logs.

I do use Spybot Search & Destroy and can say that it's a very good good
resource.
and can show you your startup items, BHO's, installed ActiveX, running
processes, Hosts
file, etc., so you have a chance of identifying unknown software.
Spybot can also, automatically, block attempts to automatically install
known
malicious software and block redirections and the such, to known dangerous
websites
But Spybot doesn't detect everything, so you should use multiple programs
with overlapping
protection.
You can use Spybot to identify programs that load unknowngly,
by viewing the Start Up Item & BHO's tool, then locating the files and
viewing thier properties.
Any files that have no Version & Company info listed can be manualy moved to
another folder,
where they can't be found be the system and loaded, until you're sure that
deleting them won't have
negative consequences ( i.e make sure the folder you move them to isn't
listed in the PATH
enviroment variable )

You can use the google toolbar to block pop ups
and I'd suggest that you either disable .hta's or the Windows Scripting
host,
since IE can be tricked into running them.

Yeah right. There are lots of feature and plug ins on that IE8. I think IE6 will be phase out someday. It is too old to work on.
