Hi,
Please can anyone tell me if explorer.exe should use 33,972k in the Processes Window?
When i chose to close the process all the icons disappear? Does this mean that it is not a virus?

explorer is a key part of the Windows environment and you should not terminate the process.

explorer is the user interface application that you interact with the OS via via the desktop.

SO why are you trying to terminate it?
