I'm going to make mine even smaller. ATM even before doing this exploer is using 16mb of memory atm. Thats not even touching it and i have about 20 appz running including 12 ie windows.

So about to remove all of the dialogn icons too. hehe

Nice. Down from 0.98MB to 324kb. :)

Now to get rid of un-needed menus.

hehe 323kb lol

Um i wonder. Can you compress it even more some how or bad idea? Think i will wait for response before trying that.

Now going to reboot and back with results in a sec.

Well i've been using windows now with editing exe and its using 25MB. lol

Same appz and everything as before. So a negative effect. :(

Very strange.

yeah...explorer.exe loaded the same amount of memory after i reshacked it as before.

i lost my windows icon in the classic start button, lost the icons for logoff and shutdown, so that leads me to believe that it was in fact replaced successfully.

after reverting to the original, explorer loaded the same amount of memory

If you have plugins, like spyware, loaded into explorer.exe it will increase the size you see in the task manager.

You can use hijack this to see what plugins are loaded.

while i'm no pro @ deciphering hijackthis logs...i'll post what my results were. i doubt this would lead to bloated explorer.exe...

I hacked mine directly down by only deleting bitmaps etc. I wouldn't compress is any farther..

Have you noticed a difference in usage?

Well after at least 12 yours of usage. No real difference in memroy usage. So no real effect.

I'm sure other exes and dlls get loaded into exe so cutting just explorer makes no real world diff.

Besides its only like .5 mb smaller file from the orignal so. WOW whole .5mb. lol
