    Hi,

    Does anybody realized that New WE consumes so many CPU's resources?

    Any clue why?

    Thanks,

    Flavio

    Noo, CP uses less resources, may be your explorer is onto something, try restarting explorer, explorer never uses that much CPU unless if there is something wrong.. :negative:

    No, in my explorer there is no big use of resources at all.
    Have you tried to reboot?

    Technically speaking, no.

    I log in with the Guest account and was in Metro UI. With my regular (admin) account, I killed Guest's Explorer.exe. Swtich back to the Guest session and the screen was black. So explorer.exe is also responsible for Metro UI screen.
