Win7 x64 explorer.exe GROWING memory usage!

When I start the computer, explorer.exe takes about 100MB of memory and it starts eating more memory right away (even if no programs open and I don't use the computer). About 200KB in every 2 seconds! When my computer had been open for about 6 hours, the explorer.exe was eating memory almost 1GB! Have anyone else noticed this?

Found the program which is causing that!

It's that lenovo's access connections toolbar which is causing the explorer.exe to grow.
