Vista RC1 5600 P4 2.8C (@3.43GHz) 1GB DDR memory First of all, I know Vista doesnt take lightly on the amount of resource usage, but the way explorer.exe uses resources has shown up oddly, and I was wondering if anyone has pin-pointed it to a certain task or service yet that could be changed/disabled to fix this. Is what explorer.exe is doing for me, is sometimes it seems to get caught up in using 90%+ of my CPU and usually 50+MB memory (I've noticed it above and beyond 100MB before), but its not really doing anything, and usually ends up crashing. I shut of Windows Search (indexing), ReadyBoost, and Superfetch just to eliminate them (as well as having some other services shut down prior to the problems). Has anyone made any adjustments to fix this problem, or anyone even have this problem? Also I have another question. Security is great, but I would rather be my own security rather than having Vista up my ass for every movement of the mouse or stroke of the key. I tried to just shut down all the services but then it just jumps me more for being insecure, how have any of you configured your Windows security so its not so strict about my usage?
