100+ Explorer.exe Processes Running
For starters this is my first post, so hello. I'm glad to see there's such a large Windows 7 forum. I've been enjoying everything so far.
I have an
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
CPU: Intel I7 920
RAM: 12GB DDR3 1600 RAM
GFX: ATI 4890
After a few days of up time I notice a bit of lag, when I look at my processes Explorer.exe is running 100+ times.
There's only 6 applications (including background) running + 5 gadgets. A few gadgets are system monitors and the RAM load is at 5GB (38%) and one of the cores is just sitting at ~90.
Any ideas on what could be causing this. It's good after a restart but after a while it starts back up.
Thanks in advance for the help.
