Internet Explorer gaining too much memory and lagging this game like crazy.


Recommended Posts

Okay so, Internet Explorer is gaining too much memory and lagging this game like crazy. It's actually with Firefox and Google Chrome as well. It gets really annoying having to restart my browser (only way ive found to fix it) every 20 or 30 mins. It's only a temporary fix. My laptop, and my desktop i know are more than good enough to handle this.

Is there anything i could do to reduce how quickly my browsers gain memory, it literally boosts my desktop to 60% Physical Memory and my laptop to 45% Physical Memory over time, or is this something that will come in time with an update to reduce how much it uses. I absolutely love this game, its pretty much perfect, the fact that you can use the decks you buy at walmart is extremely convenient and i would play this game literally as long as its around. Great features and still adding, but the amount of ram this starts to use over time really turns me away from it, i'd hate to have "too much" of this game because of the ram usage. Other than that great game devs. Anyways, suggestions would be appriciated. Sorry for so much text :P.

I would recommend closing any programs and processes you don't need as this will reduce the amount of memory your laptop is using. Make sure your FLASH is the most up to date as it can be. I know there was a newer version available today, or at least it said that on my laptop. I've never experienced the issue you are having and I always browse with IE.
