Explorer.exe has been taking up 99% of my CPU and therefore slowing down my computer drastically. It often has this problem from as soon as my computer starts. However, it doesn't always do it. Very unpredictable, but a big nuisance when I have to wait 10 seconds for even the Start Menu or anything else!

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
