At my computer ( 1300MB ram ) That's normal, it has always bin that way when i had multiple explorers open
mine's only 14,000, that does seem dam high
Yes checked on other PC and that was only 13.000

Gona Scan it all later
mine runs about 40mb, but has been that high on lots of occasions, mine shrinks in size as unused stuff is paged to disk.
just looked, an hour has passed since i checked, now it's 52mb :)
Mine is currently 5.8 mb's i just do a logoff or a reboot, it always gets high if i leave it on for long periods of time
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

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
