RAM problems, maybe because of Explorer.Exe ???
Posted on 2004-09-17
lately I noticed that my PC with 256 Mb RAM takes a long time even to open an internet explorer window. I removed all the spywares (with spysweeper and adaware) except maybe one that opens some popup blank window but I had the problem also before getting that spyware.
I checked in the tasks manager and I noticed that the file Exploere.Exe (notice the capital letters) is quite big when I start the system, like 4000 Kb, it goes up to 12000 Kb when I got everything started (mainly Mcafee, Spysweeper, YMessenger). If I close all those programs it's still big. If I kill it it restarts usually as explorer.exe (no capitals) and it takes 8400 Kb. Is it normal ???
I got other huge files, like Ypager that takes 23000 Kb and Internet explorer that takes 20000 Kb. I also have many other processes that are in the 1000-4000 Kb, all system processes. Is this normal or should I do something about it ???
