Chinguman can you give us details of your computer? The red note above the message box asks for it.
It is always relevant and could be even more so in this case; eg, if you have low memory, (RAM), it might have to work harder when opening multiple windows.
Explorer.exe is your Desktop GUI, (Graphics User Interface), and so is used all of the time. But are you confusing memory usage with CPU usage? Where do you get this 97% figure from?
The CPU is in use constantly. But the Task manager, (Performance tab), only shows CPU usage when it is called by Windows and programs, and not for background tasks. Typically, when a program is open, (even when Task manager is opened), CPU usage can soar to a high figure and then quickly drop back. If your CPU is "always" showing a high figure then that could be an indication that soemthing else is going on.
What do you use to protect yourself from hackers, viruses and trojans?
Hi, i've checked everywhere and i finally came to the conclusion that i have some sort of malaware in my computer, more specifically in the explorer.exe file. but i have no idea how to fix it. the memory usage keeps going 97% and up whenever i open a few windows or a file. hope i can really get some help, thanks.
