I looked at my task manager todady and i noticed that i have 2 explorer.exe's. One of them uses like 22,848 K mem usage while the other uses 3,896k. I wanna know if it is normal to have two of them and also why does one use so much memory. Am running on Winxp Pro. Thanks in advance

There are some infections that drop a bogus copy of explorer.exe onto a system.

Can't tell if you have that infection without a Hijack This! log file.

If you want someone to take a closer look, do this:
-----------------------------------------------------------
Please make a permanent folder (not on the desktop) for Hijack This! (suggest "C:\HJT\"), and download it (from the link in my signature) into that folder.

Run it from that folder.

Click "Scan".

DO NOT "FIX" ANYTHING WITH IT YET!!! FIXING THE WRONG THING COULD RENDER YOUR SYSTEM INOPERABLE!!!

Click "Save log".

Reply to this thread, and post the ENTIRE CONTENTS of the log file into this thread.
