After a while there are two instances of it and I've seen up to 4. Should I disable these extensions as well? I have no p2p program installed and i have been using ccleaner for 2 years scanning at least 5 times a day for junk files as well as registry problems. I let Windows restart the Explorer. It tries to determine which software you use and stores parts of it to the Windows folder. It happens almost every time I navigate through my frequently used folders, especially if I move through the folders quickly.
So, you got a lot of questions on your mind. I just saw your post now when going to write what happened to my W7. The memory increases until my system can't take it and crashed. Now I think that might be normal, so anyway. Do you have a time line for 'recently'? I'm fairly sure this was the reason for my laptop starting to flip out. Windows 10 includes the ability to restart Explorer directly in the task manager without having to close it and restart it.
Select the Quick Scan option. The child process creates the windows that you see. I'd first suggest using the first level triage for the first trace And then to use the Resource Analysis for the second trace checking everything except for the power usage. I know this issue has been discussed in former discussions, and I read most of them. I kept ending process from task manager, and it kept coming back. The going thought here is the lawsuit brought against the antivirus companies from said companies. That's what you should have.
Currently, I have disabled all non-Microsoft extensions, and I'm still experiencing the behavior I describe in the original question. I have a problem when I was trying to open a folder. I'll update the original question. Also, why is the svchost taking up so much memory too? See this guy's post, and my reply, for more info: I'll mark this thread as solved pretty soon here, once I'm sure the problem is really gone. Could these 2 be related? Run again - Scan then Clean - post the log file.
When I boot up my system, it's all good for a few minutes, keeping at around 1. Checking for malware would also be a good step to do if you experience slowdowns or unexplained memory usage. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able. Double Click on the Mini Toolbox icon. All other folders are opening properly. I guess the next step is to systematically try and figure out which shell extension is the culprit by manually re-enabling each entry, huh? If you have already disabled all non-Microsoft shell extensions and that didn't help, I'm sorry but it's outside the scope of what I experienced.
I can't open Control panel. I believe this is a bug in explorer. If any one library cause the problem, finding out which document s could be a matter of binary search move out half of the files, then a quarter, etc. Time, I think, to take up Bob's suggestion of using another browser, and also I would suggest you scan for malware. I booted back up and I still have explorer. Using Process Explorer, I identified the thread msvcrt.
I have attached a screen shot of a new pop up which now appears asking me to install. Be sure to download a fresh copy to help rule out problems with the first copy. Because this is what seemed to fix the problem for me, even though I didn't install any third-party programs within the time that the problem started happening. I then restarting the computer in normal mode and was able to delete it again. I resumed watching a video and about 30 to 40 minutes later, Windows popped up the same error message, saying that my system was low on memory, with Explorer. The process didn't start immediately after I installed Windows 10, but it started shortly after and then carried on for a few days.
Any infections or problems will be highlighted in red. I also looked for the svchost. The scan log will appear in Notepad. It turned out that this disk activity was due to Windows 10 indexing my entire file system, including the contents of documents, etc. If it does help, you would have to track down the third party browser extension causing the problem.
It seems that when I try to edit the properties such as file name, genre, artist, etc. Based on excellent suggestions from Superuser, I've done a lot of troubleshooting. Will it happen again if I go in safe mode now? For example, Windows Defender uses a service that is hosted by a svchost. So this time I manually killed Explorer. Here's a link: If you generate traces I'll be happy to look at them - I think I'm fairly good at reading them. Windows Explorer is not working. What have you tried so far? Especially if it's an external drive.
Untick all entries Except Acer Backup Manager. Hence, have kept it as is. Unfortunately, Super fetch doesn't always get it right which software you're going to use and can keep your hard drive busy for minutes after booting. Moved from Vista to Am I Infected - Hamluis. Check Device Manager to be sure all drivers are installed.
