Virus?
    #2690066 - 05/17/04 05:20 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

All of a sudden, for no apparent reason (I installed itunes 4.5 and windows media player 9.0 recently, but system restored to before then and that didn't solve the problem), whenever I run windows explorer and start using it, the explorer.exe process (which I know is different from windows explorer) begins looping or something because it takes up all my system resources from that point on until I restart.

Anyone have this happen? Solutions? I ran the latest norton av with latest virus defs to no avail.

I either talk about my friends in the first or third person, but I never, ever talk about myself on this website. Except that last sentence.

Try running spyware removal tools.

http://www.lavasoftusa.com/ for Adaware Personal 6 (Free)
http://www.safer-networking.org/ for SpyBot (Free)

Run those and see if they fix the problem. Remember to update to the latest reference files availible.
