:thumbsup: On my Processes tab, It says that explorer.exe is taking up 94-97% of my CPU, only leaving 3-6% for the rest of my computer! When I end the process, the start bar, desktop Icons and everything else but the backround disapear from the screen. How can I fix this, or can it even be fixed? My processor is a P4
2.80 Ghz. I can barely play any games or go on the web and it is getting pretty frustrating.
