I have had this problem with my computer for the last couple of days. I consider myself quite well oriented with computers, but this one I really haven't been able to fix yet. The whole system works fine when browsing my local discs, using the internet or whatever. But whenever I browse my server computer on the network, explorer.exe rises to 50% cpu usage and stays there until I kill it, and then I'm forced to either reboot or relog to get back to normal. It's not rising to 50% right away, but maybe after some minutes.
I have done plenty of virus checks on both computers but I have come up with nothing. Really frustrating since it just started to behave like this a couple of days ago. I have read through most of the threads on this site with people having similar issues, and I have tried most solutions with misc. programs to see whats wrong.. but nothing.
Here's my Hijackthislog from earlier when explorer.exe rose to 50% again. (with most of my programs shut off)
I have scrolled through it and can't see anything that should be causing this, but maybe I'm missing something..
Any help is appreciated. I suppose I could post a HJT log from the server, but I really don't have much installed on it except Apache.
My system spec:
Nvidia Geforce 7950GT
Intel Core 2 CPU - 6300 @ 1.86GHz
4 GB ram
Using Win XP with SP3 (all updates are up to date)
