exlporer.exe went crazy -idles at 1.2 Gigs

It sits at about 12000K if not on internet and leaps to sometimes over that
I use Fierefox and it also has increased usage to sometimes over 200,000 K and makes mouse pointer and response jumpy and hap hazard.
This all started a few weeks ago after a "critical windows update that also took out my built in mouse pad though the external ones work
I can use the pad on the laptop to click on the log on icon that appears on the screen when I first turn it on but not after
Tried to do a system restore but it tells me I have errors on my disc that I need to repair and the repair didn't work and says everything is fine .
If this is a windows thing would it be simplest to just reinstall the W7 program and start over

FIXED IT --- I think

For what ever reason
Allow Remote Access was turned on
when I turned it off the dropped from 1.2G to 27.000K
For the pad mouse =it had been disabled so I turned it back on also and now works fine.

Guess its a good idea to review these settings occasionally

Still working on the "can't restore because of a corrupt file in "C"

Thanks a lot for your help
Did a bunch of scans and they showed no malware or virus stuff, just a lot of cookies and reg errors.
