My system was running terribly slow, and i noticed in the Task Manager under Processes there were two Explorers listed, Explorer.exe and Explorer.EXE, i noticed the Explorer.exe was taking up 100% CPU and 3MB memory. I have never seen this before, what is it?

yep im agreeing with thse previous folks. Im thinking of that dlder.exe trojan.

This trojan places one of the following files on your machine:

c:\windows\dlder.exe

or

c:\windows\explorer\explorer.exe

dont confuse this with the proper explorer.exe that should be there: c:\windows\explorer.exe

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???
