hi there my computer has slowed up a lot the last few days i checked the task manager and my cpu useage is showing 100% there is a item explorer.exe useing a lot and i also noticed further down the list i also have iexplore.exe both are running at the same time? , all the time my cpu useage is at 100% i googled it and there are many posts about it , if someone knows can they explaine to me how to solve the problem, or where to go to download something to remove the offending nasty, i need it to be simple as ihave limited experiance on computers.
As long as explorer.exe is running from C:\Windows., it's really the core of the Windows system, and so it's likely to be the main user of CPU power. If the computer is running slowly, try downloading A-squared click here, and see if it can detect any malware. Another thing you can try is disabling all non-Microsoft services. Start - Run , type in msconfig and click "OK". In the System Configuration Utility click on the Services tab, tick the box for "Hide All Microsoft Services". Disable all the other services, and OK out of the System Configuration Utility. restart your computer and see if it runs any faster. Beware, you are now running without any protection. If the computer is now running at normal speed, go back into the System Configuration Utility and re-enable a few of the services. Keep doing this until you find the program responsible.
i have ASquare running now, when i first looked online about this problem on google there was a lot of listings about the subject quite a few suggestions and advice on how to remove it manualy is this a option i should try, or has anybody any suggestions of other programms that might work ? and advice is very welcom.
i have tried all the above to no avail ,i think this one is a bit tricky seems to not be uncommon and getting worse all the time cpu useage is 100% all the time and there is no way i can chance doing internet banking till i am sure its fixed any other ideas?
