Yahoo! / laptop overheating

1 United States

Recently visiting Yahoo! to check email or read an article, causes my laptop CPU temperatures to reach 190 (F) before crashing my laptop. It does this in about 10 minutes of entering the site. It does this with any browser, and this is the only site where this occurs.
I monitor the temperature and CPU usage, the CPU usage does not seem excessive, which is puzzling. Once I leave the site, the CPU temperature returns to normal. My laptop has an AMD Phenom CPU, and it is not being overclocked. I wonder if anyone else is experiencing this. I have attached two screenshots showing how much my CPU temp increases after 5 minutes on the Yahoo! site.

Cheers.
