Using ADO with ASP

In Visual Interdev, I used the Data Form Wizard to generate some of my forms to access an MSAccess database.  

I've noticed that when I'm viewing/navigating through these pages in Internet Explorer, my System/User resources (RAM) keeps getting eaten up. When I go visit other sites (after navigating through my database forms),  none of my resources get freed.  If I go back to  my database forms, my browser eventually crashes because it has taken up all my memory.  Once I close my browser, the resources are freed.

I've tried adjusting the amount of disk space allocated to my Temporary Internet Files, but this doesn't really seem to make a difference. (ie. Still crashes because it's running out of resources(RAM))

Is this a bug with ASP?  I'm running ASP.dll file version 1.13.09.0.  I'm not aware of any bugs in this version.

Or is there something else that I should be doing?  I've tried
Session.Abandon after most of my pages, but this doesn't seem to do anything either.

Any ideas?

I've tried displaying this in Netscape (3.01) and it doesn't seem to eat up my memory.  It looks like it frees it when I navigate to other sites...

The version of IE that I'm running is 3.0 (4.70.1215)

Hi, mira.I'm a webdesigner using ADO objects and ASP scripts to accessSQLServer tables and they all work great, except on MSIE3.0.My browser crashes terribly with complex pages viewed overa secured connection. And, guess what? Netscape works fine.So I can't really answer your question without taking a look at your ASP source but stop worrying about ASP.DLL. ASP.DLL is OK  MSIE3.x is a mess. So if you're hooked on the Explorer (like Iam), get your hands on the MSIE4 BETA as soon as possible because it works great (to bad it's still in beta).

I'm trying to give you a grade, but I don't seem to have the option to do it.

Can you try replying to me with some other comment?

Sorry to disagree rpabst, but ASP had a registered
bug to the effect that it was leeking memory.  Try
putting in the latest service pack (V3), that should
solve it...

Oh, and as for MSIE4b, be very very very careful,
it is NOT uninstallable.. (messes up the system
way too much to recover :( )
