Build 5384 (Beta 2) explorer.exe CPU utilisation and memory creep

A

Alastair

I've just installed beta 2 on an Acer Travelmate 8200WLMi laptop and the CPU
utilisation of explorer.exe is at about 80%.

The memory utilisation has gone up from 80MB to 158MB in about half an hour...

you can stop defender.

Well... it's not too bad, but if you have more than about 5 gadgets running,
I noticed the I/O shoot way up.
