prophetik music Posted December 5, 2006 Report Share Posted December 5, 2006 so, i've got this problem with windows. every time i start my computer, windows explorer (the GUI interface, not IE) jumps to 100% CPU usage. my computer isn't thinking or anything, it just doesn't DO anything. it acts like it's running some really huge processes, but the 'thinking' light doesn't even turn on, and the computer just lags really really bad. so i close 'explorer' with the task manager, and it runs fine. i've got more than a gig of ram in this computer, i've got a huge amount of space on my hard drive, i virus-scan my computer every week, and i know there's no spam on it. i THINK this started after running what turned out to be a bad keygen which tried to install a bunch of viruses on my computer. virus checker caught them before they were installed, and i was fine. this started about 2 weeks after that. what's causing my CPU problem? it's REALLY annoying not being able to access my icons in the desktop, and all that. does anyone have any idea? please just don't tell me to buy a mac, or run linux. i want a solution, not a retarded answer.
