Hey there! I have just noticed recently that explorer 7 is using much more of my cpu than it ever did before. I have been using it for a couple of years now and have had no such problems. I run Cc cleaner regularly to maintain my registry and malwarebytes to ensure my computer is sypware free. McAfee also runs virus scans so I don't know what it could be?

The computer has been quite sluggish over the past couple of weeks. I have noticed the cpu running at full speed often and the culprit are many SvChost operating processes that are official apparently. This was never the case before, is it just microsoft's policy of built in obsolescence, compelling me to buy another one of their operating systems?

I am running VISTA SP1 and would be grateful for your help!
