What are possible causes for explorer.exe to blowup to 70-80+ % CPU usage?? NO I do not have an trojans or viruses, my machine doesn't have any extra crap running on it in the background. Typical things I use are Video editing applications like Sny Vegas, Sorenson Squeeze, and Photoshop - usually after opening/running a couple things - bam - task manager shows exploere.exe hogging & bogging down. Any ideas? Should I just wipe/reinstall windows?
Is compacting the registry safe & a good thing to do? will it improve performance and speed things up? What specifically would this to for me? I'm using Registry Mechanic on a windows XP machine.
