IE new window popups - very slow - with a delay and CPU spike
Posted on 2003-12-03
on some PCs I experienced the following problem
if I click on a link that wants to pop a new window -
CPU spikes, there is a few second delay, and only then the window pops up.
consistency: depends on each PC - you either have this problem or not,
but if you do - it is always there -
NOT dependent on any conditions of the below (though some agrievate the symptoms):
-freshly rebooted PC/ long uptime
-freshly opened IE/ long used
-amount of phys memory
-amount of available phys memory
-amount of virtual memory
-site (consistent on all sites that pop windows)
-seen it in IE versions 5 and 6
need explanation and how to fix it.
