Hello. Lately, I have noticed an extra explorer.exe process running in task manager that uses more and more memory the longer it is allowed to run until the system all but freezes and needs to be rebooted. I can end the process before this occurs, but it always restarts itself. Is this a windows bug or malware? Thanks!

Nevermind. I ran MBAM and it looks like the extra explorer process didn't come back. Please mark this as solved.
