    mine runs about 40mb, but has been that high on lots of occasions, mine shrinks in size as unused stuff is paged to disk.

    from the screen shot that you gave us, there is alot more running in the backround than you think. there may be spyware taking all the jouce form your computer. run Spybot or adaware on ytour computer. and see what happens

    mine is using 33,444, but have my explorer.exe to open new folders and such in the same process, it means if one ****s up they all die, but it keeps my icons properly and to be honest it doesnt die all that often
