This has only started recently but whenever i start up my computer the explorer bar takes for ages to load. If i go into task manager under the processes tab it says the explorer is using up to 90 % of the CPU.

How can i stop this happening?

Hello Crow. As I mentioned in mcoletta's thread, some malware can inject itself directly into explorer.exe.

... In addition, there may be several DLL's appended to it that may also need to be removed. I recommend using Process Explorer to check, outlined in this web page that describes how to remove a particular malware that is injected within explorer.exe, but can be applied generically to any unwanted DLL's within explorer.exe.


Hi there
sounds like a virus run your anti virus program and see what it can detect and delete also pay special attention to the ones it cannot delete if so post it here
