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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
