Internet Explorer consumes approx 1GB of memory to open HTML file of 45MB

Q: Internet Explorer consumes approx 1GB of memory to open HTML file of 45MB

Hi,
I have a HTML page contains normal paragraph text content of 45 MB size. When i try to open it in IE, it is consuming around 1GB of memory and unable to open the file, crashes sometimes. Is the behavior is expected or is there any settings in
IE to open large HTML file.


Thanks,
Bala

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,
We have a COM dll which when embedded in html file and ran on Internet Explorer (Windows 7) was working fine. We were able to make call to the APIs exposed by the COM dll.

    But recently, we installed the windows updates namely
KB3074886 and
KB3065822.   

    After this, whenever we are accessing the API's of this COM dll, we are getting an error "SCRIPT438: Object doesn't support this property or method: ".  So we tried uninstalling the above two updates and saw that we were
able to access the APIs of the COM dll perfectly fine. Only when these updates are installed we are facing the above said error.
            Can someone assist us in what may be going wrong here. It will be very helpful for us as it is important for us to run with this updates installed in our system.

Thanks in Advance,
Satya.

I recently started to receive error messages about my memory usage being high. I have looked at the processes on the task manager and the worst programs that seem to use the most memory appear to be iexplore.exe. I always sort the processes according to how much memory usage is being used and iexplore is always at the top and there are usually about five or six instances even if I'm only using one window. Also when I look at my main drive on my computer (C in the explore window it appears to be almost completely full as if my computer is loaded with all kinds of stuff. I've transferred so many files and folders to my external hard drive, flash drives, and anything else I can think of but I'm still having the problem. The other day I was using the computer and everything was working ok but suddenly I lost connection to the Internet and my network disappeared completely. There wasn't even anything to try to work with in the Network and Sharing Center. So I have no access to the Internet. I had signed up with a tech support company but everything has to be done over the phone. If I have internet connection they can take over my computer remotely to fix it.

Hi: I have an email with an attachment which suddenly I cannot open. I receive the following message: "Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded". How do I change these settings? I have disabled Norton but that didn't work.

A:Cannot open a file (Internet Explorer) in my email.

What email client? You can't open it because it isn't on your local PC yet, it's on the email server from your description, still? (though choice of word suddenly is interesting...)

If you aren't connected to the internet, that would do it.
If the attachment was not allowed at the server level due to size restrictions or content, that might be issue, also.

Please elaborate on details if that wasn't of any help.

I have a web page that is distributed to users within the company that has various links to the users machine and company's intranet.

One of them is a file:///d:/FOLDERNAME link that should open up the folder in Windows Explorer. All users of the web page will have this folder on their computer.
However, when I test it in IE, the link does not respond at all. Hovering over it displays the correct link. But clicking on it, or right clicking and selecting open does nothing.

WHAT DOES WORKI can put the URL directly into IE and it opens the directory perfectly.
I can put the link into an Outlook message and it opens the directory after giving a warning. (Micorsoft Office has identified a potential security concern. The location may be unsafe. Do you want to continue)
WHAT ELSE DOES NOT WORK
I tried opening this with Safari and I get a message "You don't have permission to view this page"

IE on my system often hangs when I attempt to open a file that I saved to my hard drive. It seems that it always happens if I save a page that contains a shockwave file. The page opens fine if I navigate from the internet, but if I attempt to open the file from my hard drive then the page hangs for ~25 seconds. After that everything works fine.

To reproduce the issue navigate to www.yahoo.com. Next, follow one of the links under "In the News". After the news page opens, save the file by clicking on the File - Save As... menu item and then under "Save as type" select "Web page, HTML only". Then click the Save button to save the file. Finally, open the saved file by clicking on the File - Open... menu item. On my system the text will appear immediately, but then IE will hang for a while, after which the advertisement will appear.

Any ideas?

When I try to open a local html file (either by right clicking on it and opening with IE, or by loading IE and then dragging and dropping a file onto it), IE immediately crashes.
 
Specifically, it will come up with the crash popup window "Internet Explorer has stopped working". You click "Close the program" and it does it a second time (which is normal behaviour for how IE will try only twice, to avoid an infinite loop), and then you end up still in IE on that page that says "We were unable to return you to the page you were viewing."
 
It is not an issue with the code or content of the html file. Even a file that just says "hello" in it will crash this way.

Lately, I have started encountering this problem of dllhost.exe (sometimes only one instance, other times multiple instances) gobbling up my computer's entire CPU memory resulting in a crash/error message. After reading many articles online on possible solutions, I've installed two Sysinternals utilities - Process Explorer & Process Monitor.

However, I am a newbie as far as these two softwares are concerned and it will take a while in understanding to use them to figure out what is causing the dllhost.exe CPU gobble-up problem. Besides, all the technical stuff - processes>threads>dlls, registry values etc. scares me.

I'd really appreciate if someone can help me figure out and fix the dllhost.exe problem.


Symptom
1. dllhost.exe starts hogging CPU memory when I browse/watch/view jpegs, media files (.mp4 etc.). At times there is only one instance of dllhost.exe, other times there are multiple instances.

A:dllhost.exe (COM Surrogate) consumes all CPU memory

If you notice the problem, look in task manager for mobsync.exe. I had issues with it. But it was more troublesome in Vista than Windows Seven. It seems to exist in order to make every media file on the system available to WMP. Sort of like a file indexer for media files.

Another possibility is if you have your Lan set to share media files over the network with WMP. Same type of thing. It searches every drive on your system looking for media files.

Please post back if you see evidence of either of the above.

If nothing shows up regarding mobsync then as a last resort see this:
COM Surrogate Error - Microsoft Community

btw on Vista I fixed the disk hogging CPU eating problem by using a program that killed mobsync.exe every time it tried to start.

Hi,
I have problem.
When I'm copying large files from from C disc to D disc (two phisical hdd drives) it consumer all my free memory. First it starts really fast, transfer rate is cca. 80-90MB/s, and when it fills all avaliable memory (I'm monitoring task manager) then it starts to slow, to 10-20MB/s till copying is finished. During that time working anything else in windows is almost impossible as everything is very slow. Strange thing is, when I'm copying reverse from D disc to C disk everything is as it should be, during copying transfer rate stays at 80-90MB/s, it consumes some 200-300MB of memory, and windows response is statisfying. I have a fresh installed Windows 7, before that I have XP.
My hardware: MBO GigabyteGA-MA790GP-DS4H, CPU AMD 940, RAM 2x2GB kingston, HDD 2xWD green 10EADS

Hello,I'm having a problem fixing my laptop. The svchost.exe is consuming all my CPU usage and if I let it continue, it will consume all my memory and crash Windows. I have done some removal of malware, spyware, and viruses and show up clean in Norton AntiVirus, Prevx (this was the only program to find something which I have deleted already), Adaware, BHODaemon, Bazooka, and Stinger. Other symptoms include having my Norton AntiVirus auto protect turned off when the pc starts up, internet activity when not doing anything (did a IP sniff and found that it is going to 207.138.126.230, but can't seem to decipher what it is trying to send), internet working sluggish to not working at all, and my windows themes temporarily going to Windows Classic but does go back to XP style on its own.The last thing I have removed was the msasvc service from the registry setting but still having problems. One thing I couldn't delete in the registry setting though was LEGACY_MSASVC from enum folder :HKLM/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Enum/Root/LEGACY_MSASVCHKLM/SYSTEM/ControlSet003/Enum/Root/LEGACY_MSASVCHKLM/SYSTEM/ControlSet001/Enum/Root/LEGACY_MSASVCKeeps telling me "Cannot delete LEGACY_MSASVC: Error while deleting keyBelow is the Hijack This logs as close to start up as possible with svchost.exe still running at max:Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1Scan saved at 9:41:14 PM, on 12/15/2006Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)Running process...

I bought a new notebook and upgraded from windows 8.1 standard to pro so I can rdp into it.
I use rdp because it's easier to connect this way and take advantage of my desktop screens and keyboard/mouse.
When I am connected via RDP, the logonui.exe process takes more and more memory until the machine is unusable. I kill the process (or process tree) and it re-starts climbing in memory consumption once again.
It only happens when connected via RDP from my windows 7 Pro desktop.

Hello everyone--Earlier today I openned Outlook Express so I know it worked today--at least it opened.When it did open and I trid to download messages it would not connect to my main emaii account though. It had not been doing this[ not connecting to the main email] for a few days. It connects to and downloads all other accounts though. It will not connect in safe mode or with antivirus and firewall off.

All other email applications like gmail and thunderbird can connect to and download messages

It stalls at the splash screen and uses just about all the memory --I only have 512 mb but have 250+ available for OE.It does not use more than about 10% of the cpu.

I need to get the 600 messages off the server and download them into the proper folder then I will switch over 100% to thunderbird.

I have not run any thing like crap cleaner since it opened earlier today.

any help would be appreciated

Hello,

after ZeroAccess virus successfully has been removed with TDSSKiller, Combofix and MBAM, a performance problem still persist
Explorer continously runs at 40-50% CPU.
According to procexpl, this is caused by ntdll.ll, one of the explorer threads. If I suspend this thread, CPU usage is normal (20-30% total). I I kill the thread, explorer terminates after a few minutes.
How to further diagnose the cause of this and remedy (I have downloaded Windows SDK, but lack the skills to use).

Secondary issue is that register contains 163 controlsets (while 2 is normal). It is unclear why these have been created. How to remove these ?

your assistance would be highly appreciated

Hi,

I have a Hewlett Packard Vectra desktop pc
Pentium 3, 930 Mhz, 128MB ram
Windows XP home edition upgrade
This is a very strange problem, it may have to do with my registry.
After running a registry scan and fixing errors, I noticed that all
my software programs that display any kind of html, such as
Outlook Express, my html editor, my keyword research tool, and
my webpage design software, will no longer display, but instead,
a windows screen pops up prompting me to either open the file
in my browser or save it, thus, rendering my software programs
useless. I have no idea how to fix this and I don't have the technical
knowledge for this type of problem. If need be, I will reformat
the hard drive and just start over, but would rather fix the problem.
I scanned the registry twice (mistake), so I don't think I can go back to the way it was.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi All,

OK, first I am not sure if I am still infected, but the computer is still not acting right and considering everything I don't trust it .

Running Win Xp / MCE Version 2002 SP 2

I run NIS 2008, last full scan was 3/31/09, and last update was 4/1/09. Run NIS religiously, always keep subscription/updates up to date.

Ran MBAM 4/2/2009 DB 1939 - now clean
SuperAntiSpyware 4/04/2009 7:10 AM Core 3829 - now clean

Here is the scenario.

On 4/1 Firefox began crashing erratically. I did the update for 3.0.8
When I restarted Firefox I could not get an Internet connection, even though IE7 connected fine.
I did a system reboot, at that time decided to go forward with Microsoft update to SP3 (I never reboot my computer, usually leave it running and just hibernate).
AFter that, system would load, prompt for user/pass but then just go to wallpaper, nothing else.
System would just hang there, did several reboot attempts.

System would give black screen on Safe Mode, would still hang with Wallpaper on "Last Known Configuration".
AFter that used MSCONFIG to get system running with wireless connection. At that point noticed several things:
*Google in Firefox and IE would redirect search results randomly to different pages
*Explorer.exe even though not technically running, was eating a LOT of memory, I am talking 350K+ and up,
Tried to run DDS.scr, just blipped the Dos prompt and disappeared. Would not run.

I am trying to create a 2-column html table. I want to put a large image in a cell within the second column of the table, and "wrap" the image in <div> tags so I can limit the display width, and have scroll bars so the user can scroll the image to view the entire thing.

The sizing of the <div> works correctly but, the table is always the width of the ENTIRE image...nothing I do seems to limit the width of the table. So, even though the <div> is the correct width, and has the scroll bars, the table is the width of the underlying image.

I will include some sample text to demonstrate the problem. Just choose a large image that you might have on your machine, and insert it's path into the <img> tag. The example image I am using is 1600X1200.

PS: in this example I am using "min-width" and "max-width", but the problem is the same if I simply use "width".

This code works properly in Firefox. Is there anything I can do to get the desired behavior in IE or, are table widths determined by the contents of the table in IE, regardless of the properties that are defined?

Don't use tables and position everything using css
Its actually very easy to learn i used a tutorial at the website html-dog (google for it) which was very helpful.
Tables should only really be used for tabular data and are not a way to lay out websites.

This isn't Internet Explorer. It's only a patch. If this is what you uninstalled, you didn't uninstall IE. You only removed a patch. In any case, you can't really uninstall IE. You can roll back to a previous version (except on XP), but you can't remove it completely unless you use some sort of non-MS third-party utility.
