It should take care of the problem. Downloaded Kaspersky TDSSkiller and it found nothing. EMF | November 8th, 2006 at 11:51 am Thanks. Thursday, September 03, 2009 5:00 AM Reply | Quote 3 Sign in to vote I have the same problem.

I had to try it 5 times, because it kept crashing, but eventually TDSSkiller found the virus. Never had any problem before. It just keeps eating up the CPU.

I was able to kill the thread and voila! When opening folders explorer runs 100% cpu time and crashes. After uninstalling the McAfee software I noticed my problem had gone away. I've struggled with this for a very long time, spent hours and hours on the phone with HP customer support. . .

Hopefully they solve your problems!Virus or Spyware.

Thank you so very much.All of the computers I have except one I bought new(my laptop)have been built by me from Goodwill parts "a new part every now and then" they It would then multiply until it consumed all of my RAM. Don't know if I would have had a problem, but I ran the IE8 .exe from your link, just in case and then did a huge update, which worked flawlessly. The computer was fresh installed, and I am playing CS1.6 with no problem at all.

I had tried many other options, scans, virus detections including AVG and Malware Bytes.

Michael | January 9th, 2009 at 2:12 pm Oops , I just downloaded Process Explorer , I suspended then MURDERED the thread , but how exactly do I find and delete the Sysinternals tools. It has spawned several threads which all have a high CPU load in SHLWAPI.dll!Ordinal629+0x161. My SHLWAPI.DLL version is 6.0.6000.16386. The problem with this solution is that it is only a temporary fix.

I tried maybe 4-5 different anti-virus programs and none of them worked except kaspersky Sorry I haven't gotten back in a while, but this solution was spot on.

It should take care of the problem.

Click on 'Apply'. After applying your fixes I rebooted and the system still freezes when I start explorer for a minute or so.
