Hi Guys !

We find out that "Explorer.exe" is very big when it loads in

memory, my taskmanager say "76.363 K" - 76 MB ?!

Please check your taskmanager and let know ...

Maybe this is a problem with the latest windows xp updates ?

THX in advance :huh:

My explorer.exe uses 14,192 K on my desktop and uses 49,172 K on my laptop (which is weird considering they have pretty much the exact same software installed and running).

Around ~ 15-20 K should be normal - but 76 K :|

i believe the more software/program u have running on ur pc such as antivirus/onecare/etc that interacts with explorer.exe, it will eat up more memory coz its like the windows shell hub for everything to work. kill explorer.exe and everything's gone. just my two cent.
