Internet Explorer

I am constantly getting a pop-up from AVG recommending that I switch off IE because it is using too much memory. It quotes a figure of between 450 and 650 mb.

Can anyone explain what is happening and how I can stop it?

It is a new feature in AVG 2012 called AVG Advisor - you can turn it off in Advanced Settings-> Appearance -> "Display AVG Advisor performance notifications".

It could be because of IE add-ons. It can happen when the RAM of the PC is relatively small compared to the size of programmes installed.It is referring to virtual memory rather than RAM - have a look at this article which explains it.

It may be a good idea to try to reset your IE settings - I assume you have IE9 - have a look at this article on how to do this. This will return your IE9 to how it was when first installed and your present settings will be lost.
