IE 8 problem while using google groups

    I'm using win xp and IE 8.

    When I use google groups in IE 8 a problem occurs.

    When I reply to a post, and have the reply box open for typing, IE 8
    cyclically starts running up the CPU usage to near 100 pct, then
    abates to zero, then cycles the CPU usage back up, repeatedly. While
    I'm typing, nothing shows up while the CPU is being hogged, then it
    all the typing appears at once.

    What's doing this and how do I stop it?

    Thanks

    Try running IE in 'no add-ons' mode and see if it still happens.

    I'll answer my own post in the interest of anyone else encountering
    this problem. It appears that it's assocoated only with large
    newsgroup threads where google newsgroups is relying on the cpu for
    something that separate newsgroup programs do without loading the cpu.
