Hi, I've had this problem before where explorer.exe uses 99% of my CPU and makes my computer run really slowly. Thankfully, I fixed it. However it's happened again, and I searched all over for topics about how to fix it, finding many (i guess it's pretty common), and I tried a few things and they worked, but only temporarily. Now it's happened again and for some reason none of my .wmv's can play either video or, in some cases, sound. And I know it's not a codec issue because they were working just fine yesterday. I think what I did to try and fix it must have screwed with the video. Can anybody help me with this?

also, when I try to open some folders or programs it gives me this message:

"exporer.exe - Bad Image
The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\shtheve.dll is not a valid Windows image."
