Explorer.exe with high memory usage

Hi,

My system is very slow after a few minutes when Windows 7 (x64) has started. I noticed that the memory usage of the process explorer.exe reaches 2gb. I have to kill the process in order to use my computer. I did a safe mode reboot, it works fine. I did a clean boot by disabling all the processes, the problem is there. Here are the specs: OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2350M CPU @ 2.30GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 42 Stepping 7 Processor Count: 4 RAM: 2923 Mb Graphics Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics Family, 1333 Mb Hard Drives: C: Total - 461477 MB, Free - 371414 MB; Motherboard: Acer, JM40_HR Antivirus: avast! Antivirus, Updated and Enabled

Thanks
