CPU Usage 100 when playing video


K

When I watch a television show on Fox.com, the video freezes for about half a
second every 10 seconds. It makes the video unwatchable.

I read something in the FAQ for the video player about CPU usage. It stated
that if CPU usage was over 75%, it could cause a problem with video playback.
I looked in Windows Task Manager (CTR-ALT-DEL) under "Performance" and my CPU
usage is at 100% when playing the video. When I looked under "Processes",
over 95% was for iexplore.exe (my browser I assume). When I am not watching
video, iexplore usage is less than 5%.

I am not sure if this is the problem. Is there anything that can be done to
reduce the CPU usage while running the video player?

CPU (speed/type/full specs) and amount of memory in the system in question?
