when i start the laptop and open the task manager , it show that cpu 100% and the pf usage 85.1 Mb and going up 1 Mb/second until there is a warning low virtual memory. i noticed that explorer.exe use 98% cpu. i tried to delete and modified some file from start/run/regedit (i read from people who have the same problem), but it's not solve the problem. is there anyone who can help me, please?

explorer.exe may be a nasty in disguise pretending to be a system process.

have you installed and run an up to date antivirus? maybe running a check for spyware with adaware or spybot may help click here click here install and update both then run one at a time and delete anything they find. run in safe mode if you need to.

ps. if its only happened recently use system restore to go back to a date you know all was well. still get an up to date spyware checker installed though even if that works and update and scan with them regularly.
