I recently had a massive virus pack install onto my PC from a company that is actually legitimate so it was unexpected.
I followed the steps that I normally use to get rid of the malicious software and the virus is supposedly gone but since then my explorer.exe has been using up all my CPU and all my RAM.
When I first start my PC and I have nothing running, even after 5/10 minutes, my mem usage is up to 5-7gb out my available 16. After 30-60 minutes I no longer have any available ram as it is all being used by explorer.exe even during idling.
I am using process explorer to get a better view of the problem so there is some information for you.
I recently had Microsoft security essentials but that is currently disabled as I know that it inteferes with a lot of the fix processes that are used.
If anyone can help me, that would be brilliant. When the system is using that much memory I am not able to get anything done, the pc moves at a snails pace.
