Explore.exe using 60% CPU!

  1248fixx 21:40 06 Jun 2006

In the last 3 weeks, within a minute or 2 of opening any folder, the CPU usage for explorer.exe for my user name rockets to around 60% or so, and slows things to a crawl. I remember having this problem a year or so ago but cannot remember how I was advised to fix it. Terminating the process through Task Manager, and re starting it solves the problem.....until the next time I open a folder, and I'm back to square one again. I'd be eternally grateful for any words of wisdom as this is my first posting for help!

Thanks VOG, but I've scanned several times using McAfee AND Counterspy and nothing shows up
