    I have a small problem with Explorer. For some reason (and this is only a recent development) Explorer sometimes takes up over 200 megs of ram and becomes no longer able to preform simple tasks such as opening the start menu without much delay. Does anyone know of a possible cause or a possible fix for this problem?

    Does this only happen at startup or after the computer has been on for a while?

    I've also this problem (and also sometimes explorer crash).

    For me it's a quite recent problem.

    The first month I have winXP it never occur.

    of course I've installed a lot of things since (and do all the win Update)...

    I'd do a full virus scan just to rule out (or in) that possibility.
