I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate. I get a problem with two processes:
explorer.exe and sometimes
The two processes tend to have a CPU usage between 20-30%. It only occurs when I play games on my PC - the PC works perfectly otherwise.
The processes consume no CPU as such, only really consuming CPU time when I try to refresh my desktop. When I right click on the desktop it takes a noticeable number of seconds to refresh.
I have no virus problems.
I've tried the following things:
explorer.exeand relaunched from Task Manager: problem still persists
dwm.exe, it relaunched again: problem still persists
- Logged off and logged back on: problem still persists
- Restarted the machine: problem solved, but need an alternative
Can anyone kindly suggest some quick fixes to this problem?
