to fix the situation, disable brightcove.com from running somehow-- via hosts or firefox's noscript extention, or disabling flash from running on TD.com

the majority of the load is from the "our latest videos" section on the left hand side of the site, if i disable brightcove's scripts the site runs fine.
there has to be a more efficent script to do what TD is having the one in place do.
if you want to continue using IE-- google "hosts file" and add brightcove.com to it.
edit: the machine this is on is 1.8ghz with 2mb cache, 1024 (1GB) of ram. plenty of power for a old laptop. i can replicate this issue on my home computer (linux mint 4) or work computer (XP) if need be.
