IEXPLORE High CPU usage

Experts,

OS: WinXP SP2
Machine: Dell Inspirion 1520
RAM: 2GB

My machine becomes very slow when i open internet explorer. I re-installed OS after formating and washing out everything.
Not sure what is causing this problem. On my machine i have fresh OS and Drivers (provided by  Dell).
I have disabled almost all the add-ons.
I have analysed log file from HijackThis, seems ok.
Here is the Log

I did try with different browsers, nothing helped. The problem i fixed with the indexing. I turned off the indexing on drive C:. Everything working fine now.

Thanks for help.

I can't see much wrong. I don't know what this is, so if you don't either you might try disabling this:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [OEM02Mon.exe] C:\WINDOWS\OEM02Mon.exe

When you installed the drivers, did you start with the chipset drivers? They are the most important and make sure your devices like HD's etc interface with the system at the best speeds. Check the device manager for any issues, and make sure your disk interface is set to use DMA mode, and isn't in PIO mode.

Also make sure you install the latest servicepack, and all the windows updates after that. Upgrade to at least IE7. IE6 is old and unsafe, with many security issues. Personally I'd use Firefox whenever browsing, it is safer than IE, and the newest version (3.5) is also a lot faster.

Your cpu usage isn't that high, but slowness in response can be due to other factors, such as a slow network or IO devices which are not keeping up.  I would try it with another browser like FireFox to see if it's the browser or boot with a live Linux CD like Knoppix to see if it's a system driver.  If neither one of these results in improvement, it may be a hardware device.
