explorer exe problem

  wellshgit 20:28 28 Nov 2008

Hi.I have a strange problem with my laptop. It is very slow on startup, then mouse and keyboard have a delay of 1 sec. In task manager the cpu usage is varying between 90% to 100% constantly with system and idle system process using most. when I shut down I get message explorer exe not responding, then mouse freezes and I have to shut down using start button. Have run avast and spyware doctor and have restored to earlier dates but nothing found. any help would be appreciated

System Idle Process is showing normal, around 98%, this actually means that the System is not doing anything - in other words it is Idle!

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
