What do you think?
Yup, remove the flash logo in the upper left and try again.
Also the wmode, transparent can drive the CPU up on older computers. So you should remove that parameter as well and test.
But the CPU is jumping with the rotation of the flash logo it would appear.
I will say that the tour doesn't really have any adverse effect on my PC. But it is quite powerful. Older computers will suffer under the load.
Am I looking at the correct thing in Task Manager - Processes - Memory: Preview.exe *32
If I look at Domoniques website tour link I have a similar value around 90000k but Domonique has no animations.
Maybe I am comparing the wrong thing.
I should say what is an acceptable level of usage?
In Task Manager, you should look at "CPU Time" or "CPU usage".
If these columns are not displayed, you can add them by :
VIEW -> SELECT COLUMNS
Check "CPU Usage" and "CPU Time"
On my system, while running your page, the IEXPLORE.exe process was taking 50% to 70% of "CPU Usage".
For sure, such nice tours (like the one you create) have a cost to pay for, I mean CPU ...
My fear is that for old PCs, the less CPU we use, the better the solution is.
Btw, it is just a remark ;-)

I think the main problem I have is that I am using many swf images within each pano, i.e Lens Flare, animated logo, waves effect etc. I guess a combination of all is probably eating up CPU.
