    XP Processes (XP-SP2)

    Goodmorning,

    In the processes dialog box, the process "explorer.exe" starts to use the cpu without any commands. It fluctuates from 0% to approx 24-50% on occcasion. In addition to the this, the page file usage steadly increases, slowing the computer to a crawl when starting programs. Spyware and viruses have been addressed. Is there another issue I am missing. Any help would be appreciated.

    Paul Michael

    Also: which services are started automatically? Do you need all of them?
