I have a XP home computer which comes up with 100% CPU usage
when I access any windows file ( My Computer, Explore etc)
But I can use OE, IE or any other program
It will work correctly in Safe mode
Gives 99% usage of explore.exe when it seizes up
Anyone got an idea what may be causing the trouble
Have run anti virus & adaware & Spybot

I read your original post. There was *no* mention of
cleaning up your system, only of running AV, Ad-Aware
and SpyBot. There was *no* mention of running
CWShredder; there was *no* mention of streamling
your startups, or checking services.
