My wife has started playing Farmville Game. She complains that IE is slow while playing. When I checked in Task Manager there was 3 IE's running. Is this normal?

With IE8, it's normal.
When you start IE8, it'll run two processes. Every new open tab will add another instance.

No. To slow the computer down, you'd have to have some insane number of tabs open.

Please, post some computer info:
- processor type, amount of RAM (hold Windows logo key, hit Pause/Break key)
- hard drive size/free space (open "My Computer", right click on hard drive letter, click "Properties")
- security programs in use (antivirus, firewall)
- type of internet connection

???

Aside from game servers being busy, you can try couple of things.

1. Close IE.
Go Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools, and click on Internet Explorer (no add-ons). Better?

2. Try another browser, like Firefox and see, if it has same issue.

3. Download Temp File Cleaner (TFC)
Double click on TFC.exe to run the program.
Click on Start button to begin cleaning process.
TFC will close all running programs, and it may ask you to restart computer.
