IE Freezes Constantly, Multiple Iexplore.exe*32 Running?

Fo the last few days, Internet explorer stops working all of the time. When this happens, no desktop icons work. Sometimes, I can use task manager to shut down instances of iexplore.exe*32 and it works again for a while. Sometimes, I am not allowed to close the instances with task manager as it says operationdenied.Malwarebytes returns 0 issues. I tried MS safety scanner and that also found nothing.I assume there is a virus or trojan at work here but I really don't know what else to do

IE8 Multiple Iexplore.exe Running In Task Manager
Anyone noticed that IE8 runs multiple iexplore.exe in Task Manager?

And by the way did you notice IE8 behaves differently in that respect when installed on WindowsXP as opposed to Windows 7?

WindowsXP copies of iexplore can use up to 50,000K and every copy uses quite a bit of memory.

Windows 7 copies of iexplore only use about 5-15K.

While using IE8 in WindowsXP I thought I had a malware program running by it using so much memory and exhausted myself trying to run all kinds of scans to root out the offending program only to realize it was IE8 itself. When I uninstalled IE8 and went back to IE7, the behavior stopped.

Just something interesting that might save others the frantic search to root out adware. I suppose the bottom line is DO NOT USE IE8 on WinXP.

Iexplore.exe Processes Running In Background?
On a fresh boot, after my desktop loads but before I launch any browsing/email/internet applications, I notice I have two or three instances of iexplore.exe running in the list of active processes. Does this seem "normal" for Windows 7, or should I be concerned that iexplore.exe is running even when I have not launched IE?

(Windows 7 x64). Browser is IE8, but Firefox & Chrome are also installed.

Explorer.exe Freezes CONSTANTLY
I've been using 7137 for a long time, and I haven't had any problems with it until yesterday. I'll be doing normal stuff, like using Chrome, etc. When I try and click an icon on my taskbar, nothing happens. I get the blue spinning wheel.

To add, I can't even use keyboard shortcuts to open up Run, Task Manager, and more.

Hard Drive Running Constantly
I have a Dell Inspiron laptop. I was running Vista and about 2 weeks ago I decided to upgrade to Windows 7. After the upgrade, things worked beautifully, but a few days ago my hard drive began running constantly and still is. Whether I leave it alone or am working on it does not seem to matter, yet system performance seems unaffected by it.

I am a novice computer user so straight forward instructions or explanations are more than welcome.

Startup Repair Constantly Running?
My girlfriend's Dell Mini 9 netbook decided to start acting up recently. She turned it on, and it decided to run startup repair. The repair always fails for no apparent reason, and the computer shuts itself down. I tried running a startup repair from a Windows 7 repair disc. The repair from the disc claimed that it fixed issues, and yet when I started the computer up again it ran startup repair again. Its stuck in a cycle I cannot get past. I tried running system restore from the repair disc, but it always fails as soon as its finalized. asically, what the heck is wrong? I unfortunately have little software experience, the majority of what I know is hardware related.

I just ran startup repair from the disc again and read the error details. It says that the root cause is "startup repair has tried several times but still cannot determine the cause of the problem." It still says the errors were fixed. But after yet another boot-up, the repair still automatically runs and fails.etails of the failure:Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically.[CODE]

Explorer.exe Using A Lot Of CPU (80%-95% Constantly)?
Even when I have all of the programs closed, the process "Explorer.exe" is running at 80% - 95% all of the time. This is causing serious system slowdown.

Computer Freezes Constantly?
i found my computer is freezing all the time. I have had no problems with this up to now, but it's so bad, it's impossible to do anything. After i log in, the computer will freeze after a minute or two. Doesn't matter what i'm doing. I had a problem with freezing a year ago when i used an old Saitek joystick. I deleted the drivers and software and it worked fine after that. I was using that joystick again a month ago and the computer would still run fine. However, now, it doesn't. I deleted the drivers and software related to saitek and it still freezes without fail a minute or two after startup.

System Slowed Down And Explorer Exe Constantly Failing
The issue is that all system functions, opening start menu, running control panel, opening folders or running internet explorer run extremely slowly, taking around 5-10 minutes to load or failing completely. Explorer.exe constantly fails and tries to restart. Safe mode seems to work like normal, no speed issues, he has since said it has run slow in safemode (he's not exactly happy right now, and so is snapping at me when i ask him about it so this could be a lie). The CPU is running at 1-2% constantly, i checked performance monitor idle time for it and it is consistantly showing high idle time so it's not like its thrashing. I have limited knowledge of his pc specs, i know he's running a 2.8ghz quad with 8gb ram (speed unknown but i doubt it'll have a relevance). I ran a sfc /scannow but came up with no errors, he doesn't have a restore point set (helpfull much?) and we cannot really access his antivirus effectively due to the whole speed of the system (2 hours before i managed to successfully open event viewer for example) Event viewer shows a number of issues which i will be able to provide more detail about tomorrow morning when he has calmed down a bit. We've tried to run the windows 7 disk however theres not a fix option, i'll be doing manufacturer default restore at some point probably if no solution is found (failing that a format and reinstall maybe?) however im hoping someone online can shed some light on the whole situation, something i've missed maybe. The biggest issue is it being so difficult to try to fix with it taking such a long time to open anything. This is a new custom built pc (from a website) and im assuming the components themselves are ok, (cpu or hdd broken and it wouldn't start, same with ram but im assuming a warning would of shown, and unless he's lost 7gb in one go i doubt it would show much performance decrease...) the system seems cool enough from general feeling around it, cold air being sucked in and blown out (obviously while idle but even so).

ITunes On Windows 7 Constantly Freezes?
I have Windows 7 Ultimate on my laptop and constantly am running into the issue with iTunes always freezing up either when I open the program or while it's minimized, scrolling through my library, or in the iTunes Store.

Fan Constantly Running At Full Speed HP 6910p
Yesterday I installed RC1 of Windows 7 on my HP 6910p. After install I immediately noticed that the notebook makes much more fan noise then under Windows XP.

The fan seems to be running constantly and whenever I seem to do something a bit graphical it goes at full speed.

Are there any other (HP 6910p) users that have the same experience?

Is there something I can do / tweak to make my notebook quite again.

I have already disabled the superfetch however this only reduces the HDD activity.

Windows 7. Explorer.exe Restarts Constantly After Malewarbytes Removal
I'm sending this from safe mode! I have been getting assisted with this since before the Holidays. I was sent to the Windows 7 forum to get some insight on why my CPU usage was clocking 100% no matter what I did. I ran several scans and combofixes and nothing seemed to work. I ran Malewarebytes and removed the items and explorer.exe will not run.

Display Constantly Freezes After RC1 Install
I was using the Beta since Feb. with no problems whatsoever. When the time limit was up I installed the RC1. I did a freesh install, not an upgrade. Ever since the install, my display will freeze at random and the pc requires a hard reboot. I initially assumed it was a video driver issue. First, I updated all my drivers to the latest, but it kept happening. So I tried the driver for Vista, but it kept happening. Well, gaming and watching video is the main thing I do with my pc, so as is it is useless. I disabled the video driver so I could download another OS but it still freezes, even with no video driver.

I can't stay unfrozen long enough now to download a linux distro, and my XP is no good becasue it doesn't come with the drivers I need to get online, so I can't install it and update the drivers, so basically I'm screwed.

I have searched online for hours, but no real answers. Its frustrating as hell that the beta was working flawlessly, then they made me ugrade, now its broken.

Multiple Explorer.exe Processes
obviously you can see that I'm new here and here for a specific reason and this being my reason. So I just noticed that I had 5 explorer.exe processes running before with no windows/browsers open. I could tell my main one apart because it used more memory and the others all had *32 at the end (I'm using an x64 version of Win 7 Home)
I ended them and nothing happened, but then I also checked msconfig under the start-up tab and saw.

Multiple Copies Of Explorer.exe?
I'm running Windows 7 64 bit. When I got up this morning a program (WinMHR) that scans processes and files for malware, reported 4 copies of explorer.exe as infected. I always thought there should only be one copy of it. I also did a search for explorer.exe in Everything. Here's a screenshot: 1305909911-clip-117kb.png clip. I actually shows 20 copies of it. I was running an online backup with Digital Lifeboat that I was concerned about, so I rolled back with Rollback Rx hoping to remove these copies of explorer.exe, thinking Lifeboat had something to do with them being there.

Multiple Explorer.exe And Other Errors
I wanted to install something in my laptop, but, DVD drive is NOT THEREin My Computer. So, I think that I should relaunch explorer.exe. then, bad things start to happen, all icons is gone and the icons change to "Folder" icon. If I want to open something in taskbar, it will be endless loading.

And in my task manager, it is flooded with explorer.exe (800-900 processes)

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 build 6.1 I cant update because if I launch Windows update, it will freeze.

Running Multiple Simultaneous Networks?
I would like to be able to use 2 networks at the same time, one is a wireless internet connection through my USB adapter, and the other is a wired Ethernet connection to separate router, which i use to connect to a Playstation 3 with Playstation Media Server. Frequently I am wanting to download a video from the internet while watching a different one on the PS3. he problem is when I connect both networks, I am unable to use the internet.nd what I have learned.

1. I made sure that the two networks have very different IP addresses and Default Gateways.

2. I have tried to change the priorities of the networks through Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network and Sharing Center>Change Adapter Settings. Then right clicking the connections, clicking Properties, clicking both Internet Protocol Properties (one at a time), clicking Advanced, un-checking Automatic metric, and placing my own values. Obviously i set the wireless to the lowest priority and the wired higher.

3. Also in the Network Connections list, pressing Alt, clicking Advanced, then clicking Advanced Settings; I set the order of the connections, wireless first, then wired.

(Also I did reboot the system after trying each thing)Going to command prompt and typing "netstat -rp", under Interface List I am shown the metric priorities of network devices.It seems no matter how I try changing priorities or access orders or anything, those values do not change. I am thinking if the priority of the wireless adapter was first, I would be able to use the internet while connected to both networks, and still be able to stream to the PS3 through the wired connection.

BSOD From Ntoskrnl.exe, Multiple Errors?
Computer is a few years old, a home build, running Windows 7 Home Premium x64. Haven't really had too many problems other than the occasional BSOD or random restart, but it's gotten a lot worse lately so I wanna get to the bottom of it.The two errors I've gotten are Memory Management and System Service Exception, both seem to be linked to the ntoskrnl.exe file. I also ran the System File Checker and got the following error reported: "Cannot repair member file [l:24{12}]"kerberos.dll" of Microsoft-Windows-Security-Kerberos". Lastly I ran the windows memory diagnostic and it detected several hardware errors.

1)A system restore to a couple weeks ago
2)Repair the system/OS with my Windows 7 disc
3)Replace the RAM

Wanted to post here before I try any of those though. Whew ok sorry to be long winded but wanted to provide as much info as possible.

Multiple BSOD - Appears To Be From Ntoskrnl.exe
initially my comp would just crash and i would have to power off to reboot. now im getting bsods instead, i have tried to work out the cause of these by myself but they all apear to be caused by different problems. i have looked at a lot of other bsod threads and i have used verifier.exe which created one of the memdumps.

i seem to get them whilst playing games such as lol or fallout or watching Internet videos, but sometimes i have had them for no reason at startup. i have done a fair amount of virus and malware scanning just incase it was somthing like that but its most probably a driver? i have uploaded the bsod files,
