yeah explorer.exe is using a lot of resources..him and svchost.exe. I googled that and found some windows patch but I installed that patch so it should be fixed, but it's not...

my explorer is a memory hog as well and no i dont need those logs the the trick is freeing up memory while not degrading performance lets work on that. right click on my computer and select properties. open the advanced tab and select settings under performance. the first one is visual effects check the box that says adjust for best performance. click apply. go to the second tab advanced make sure the first box is checked in both options. right below that is memory usage.select change now ive read a few articles concerning just how this setting should be set. what ive found is taking the memory you have on your machine and muliplying that X's 1.5 and thats what you set your virtual memory to. to do this select custom size clear both of those boxes and type in your memory times 1.5 on both lines click apply ok and restart you pc.

Yeah explorer.exe is using like 50-99 CPU, jumping around. As for your solution...

Already set for best performance (and I'm using Windows classic atm)
Programs already get preference over system.
My paging file is 671mb, System Managed Size.

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.

dbn500 better not come round here no more.
