I have used:
ob_start(); #at the starting of the scipt

ob_end_clean(); # at the end of the script

everything working fine. But when I go to next page and do a IE back, sometime the CPU utilization reached 100% in client system and the IE got crashed.sometime its work perfectly.
In any other script, we are not using ob_start() or ob_flush(). 

Please let me know how can we manage the memory utilization to prevent this issue.

Expected result:
IE back sud work and CPU utilization should not reach so high.
