About six months ago I postet a thread in here regarding crashes, bluescreens, out of memory errors and so on that I was experiencing. I got all sorts of help, and although it did improve my computers speed, and delayed the errors, it didn't fix it completely, and it's now coming back fully..Now I finally found the problem.

By watching my task manager I can see that Explorer.exe reaches nearly 4gb, and is often taking over 90% of cpu(?) power.

I've tried to read around, finding solutions to this, although I can't really find anything. I've read something about de-activating all non microsoft shellextensions, but I thought I'd check in with you guys first.

So, has anybody else experienced and/or had any luck fixing this?
