What do other computer users say about iExplorer?
|hogging all virtual memory on three of my family's computers. It seems to want to share internet providing duties between explorer.exe and itself, iexplorer.exe. I'm not sure why. All I know is that it slows the internet to a crawl. Dial up seems faster than DSL with iexplorer.exe. I ended the process in my virtual memory and it seemed to stop and my connection was back to normal. |
|This one took me awhile to figure out. First of all, the iexplorer I got was a memory hog that slowed down the internet. It immitates the good file, iexplore.exe. I found it and deleted it in the internet explorer folder. After deleting it, windows "healed" that "wound" by replacing it by itself with iexplore.exe. And since then, I haven't had any problems with it. Remember, don't delete iexplore.exe, this is a good file. Delete the malware copy/immitation iexplorer.exe, and, if it works like mine did, windows will replace the missing hole you've created with the real file. |
