Windows 7: 2 explorer.exe

2 explorer.exe

Win7 SP1 x64
....................................

Note: this is not Win. Explorer or IE Explorer.

I researched this online, and every site gives me a different answer.

Is it normal to have 2 explorer.exe in Task Manager? It's been there awhile, weeks or months, from the time I boot till I close down.

In Task Manager, Right-mouse click on each occurrence of explorer.exe

select "open file location" from dropdown list.

Is the file in each file location the same item?

They're just text files, and too long to post, so Pastebin is a place to post them, like a photohosting site. Tell your AV it's OK.
.
The first file is 141,000 characters, and they want me to break it into files of 25,000, so 6 files. The 2nd file is a little shorter. I don't know where the 25,000 demarcations would be. Is there something I should look for in the logs?
