IE HOGGING memory and HOGGING CPU very badly

I'm running several tabs of IE8 on winxp sp3 and it's only a matter of time when my entire PC grinds to a halt.  The CPU usage in task manager shows high 90's and the memory is over 200,000.
I upgraded to IE9.  SAME THING.
I upgraded to Windows 7.  SAME THING.

Now what???????

+200mb memory consumption on internet explorer is completely normal when you are using many tabs.
90% CPU is not so normal...

When it is using a lot of CPU, are you on a very heavily media-oriented website, e.g. something with a lot of graphics, animations, flash, videos etc?

Also what's the specs on your PC?

It's DEFINITELY happening when I hit a video web site.  I watch training webinars and it happens when I watch them!  But sometimes I'll visit a video site and it won't happen so this is what perplexes me.  

ALSO, this didn't always happen.   So this CPU hogging thing is a recent development.  

My PC is a HP Pavilion a310n Desktop with a Celeron  2.7 Ghz CPU 1 Gig of RAM.
