AMD C50 High CPU Usage

Fri Feb 10, 2012 1:47 pm

I have an acer with amd 722 with C50 processor (1.0 Ghz) OS win 7. when opening windows explorer, cpu usage increases dramatically (application "core temp" also shows the cpu temperature is rising fast) so I have to close the explorer.exe from the task manager, then open up explorer.exe again and things get back to normal. How do I solve it? Thank you

I had a much more powerful C2D-based machine that would frequently get one core bogged down by explorer.exe when I opened explorer windows (i.e., file folder windows), but not every time either :x.

I think it was fixed by deleting an old MSN web shortcut that was in "My Computer"("Computer" on Vista+). So, you could try deleting the web shortcuts there.
