Average Explorer.exe 5% CPU Usage With No Running Programs?

Windows 2K Pro: Should explorer.exe be consuming 5% system resources when no programs are running?
It seems to me this condition is not normal for my PC. I run my machine with a lot of services disabled, so I believe that an excess of running services is not the cause.
I've run the TaskInfo program to look at explorer.exe threads, and it appears the SysPager thread is causing all this activity. I could find no reference to SysPager in a search at Experts-Exchange, and very few references to it on the Internet.
Please help, as this condition seems to be interfering with the smooth operation of some high bandwidth programs.
