    The Immunize feature of SpyBot is exactly the problem you’re encountering; if you remove the “Immunize” then performance will dramatically improve.

    The problem with “Immunize” was not present in IE8 betas or RC.

    Subject: RE: (IEBlog) : IE8

    Thanks for the link,

    I have Spybot L&G w/immunization & no addons.

    I won't let my customers disable this feature as I consider Spybot S&D an indispensable asset and can't allow upgrading to IE8 until fixed.

    Any news on when IE8 Development will cease causing this debilitating delay?


    PS - I saw a lot of grips about cpu hogging issue during Beta and waited until you guys said it was gone to download - but I guess the issue is still open.
    I didn't install ie8 till last week.

    Also see the response to the other thread (I don't want to remove "Immunize") that you started on the same subject.
