    For some reason Explorer uses all CPU power, and two of my friends have similar problems. This happens usually when my computer has been on for several hours...
    System freezes for a few minutes and then it works fully again for hours.

    Windows XP Professional
    Abit BF6
    Celeron 633
    640Mb RAM
    Creative GeForce 2 GTS
    128 SB

    I am searching all over for a reason/cure for this problem...it happened to a previous install of XP I had...I re-installed and fixed it...by one friend said to copy explorer.exe from dllcache and replace the normal one and that worked for him, but I can't verify that.

    When i got my xp pro i had 64mb ram too and since thats XPs min amout it dont work so great on some progs i didnt have probs with IE but i did with other ones but once i got more ram xp seems to fly by like was nothing lol
    2 recomendations
    1 get more RAM
    2 if you cant do that then look here and try and get best out of your Virtual ram settings

    Problem solved...

    I uninstalled HotFix:Q317277 as Zerek suggested at another thread, and now system seems to be stable...
    I have my computer on 24/7, so now I'll just wait and see if this uninstallation was the cure :)
