Question About _IECreate Hidden Window

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Will opening mass amount of Hidden IE windows totally slow down and mess up your computer? They do not wait to load before return. About 1 per second for 5-6 hours.

Or do you think it does not effect your computer all that much.

Is that a serious question?

It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

So even if you quit the hidden ie browser before creating a new one will still slow down your computer tremendously?

Process creation is expensive on Windows, so anything that does a lot of it will be a concern. As well, management of each process running on the system consumes resources (memory, pagefile, CPU for process management) and you eventually run out of these -- thus my original response.

If you destroy processes as fast as you create them you to not pay a permanent price, just the overhead of creation. That said, it is always better to reuse processes (e.g. With _IENavigate) instead of repeatedly destroying and creating.

None of this is unique to AutoIt or IE, but logically applies to everything you do on the system.
