I have a new computer (2 months old) XP with SP2 / 512MB Ram.
Over the last few days, anytime I open My Computer and use Explorer to try to move some files out of my WINMX music download folder to my folder where I keep all my songs, explorer.exe ramps up to consume a consistent 50%+ (up to 84%)of my computing power. I've ran Process Explorer 9.0 to watch this "take over" happen. I can also watch the Private Bytes History slowly and steadily raise as well.
Seems to be fine in all other folders (that I can tell) - its just moving folders out of this one folder.
I have my Folder settings set to view all hidden and system files, and there does not seem to be anything malicious in that folder.
Only new thing I have added of late was TWEAKIT for XP. Not sure what, if anything, I changed though.
VERY CONFUSED and hoping someone can help. I have HiJackThis on my computer, but I don't understand all the things it gives me.
Hoping someone can help !
PS...I have run Norton, AdWare, Spybot, Microtrends Housecall, and Panda and no viruses were found.
