I use yahoo classic email and the sign in page causes my cpu usage to go from 0 - 10 to 50% and stay there. The only way to get the CPU usage back down is to close the page.
Another page that does the same thing is listed below.

yahoo.com and then go to mail.
Does not happen every time I go to email but quite often.

I am running IE6 currently, should I upgrade to IE8?

My laptop is a PCG-FRV26 Sony Vaio Pent 4 2.80ghz and 512mb ram. I am concerned that IE8 will slow down my computer even more.

Internet Explorer seems to be the most processor intensive program I run.
