Whenever I run windows explorer, the explorer.exe file spikes in the amount of ram it needs and eventually eats up all available ram and slows the system to a crawl. If I close the windows explorer, it goes back to normal. I have run search and destroy, Ad Aware and a full system virus scan with no results. Even if I boot in safe mode and run the file manager, the explorer.exe still spikes. Without opening anything, explorer.exe is consuming about 109,600K of RAM. After I run Windows Explorer it shoots up to 200,000K. When I close windows explorer, it goes back 100,000K or so.
