So after months of forgetting and never thinking about it when I am at my computer, I finally remembered to subscribe to Brad Abrams’ blog today. I was reading his recent post mentioning Silverlight hosting, when I ran into an increasingly familiar problem I am having on my computer. I clicked on the link to the Silverlight Streaming site and my browser pegged out the processor and my computer was unusable for a few minutes while I tried to get a Task Manager window into view to kill the process.
I have Silverlight 1.1.20816.0 installed, and it only seems to happen when I use IE. I haven’t noticed this with Firefox although I haven’t tried that as much, and I have only noticed it on sites using Silverlight. I’m on Win XP SP2 with IE7. Has anyone else experienced this? Anyone have any thoughts on what I should do to fix this?
Please contact me here or leave a comment if so.
