Many people have reported this problem and various people have suggested solutions but there are no clear answers. The SOLUTION I found is to create a new user profile and login to it and transfer your files and settings to it. If it is a Domain joined computer then just clear the locally cached user profile to re-create it and you should not experience the runaway memory leak of explorer.exe process from jamming up your computer.
