What is explore.exe

Posted: 01-20-2004, 10:34 PM
When I run msconfig, explore.exe shows under the startup items with the
following location.....
SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\RUN....

whatever this is, it keeps my processor pegged at 100% and my machine is
useless. When I turn it off
my machine doesn't seem to run right either. I have a Dell 2350 with XP SP1
(OEM) and all available
updates applied.

Please help
