Any ideas on why "buffer overflow - explorer.exe" would just recently (last month or so) become very active. Mostly when I'm in my folder structure. I'm also experiencing "hangs" in certain folders - and when clicking on My Computer - I sometimes need to end task because the searchlight is the only thing that displays. I update daily and run full scans several times a week - no problems ever show up?? I ran the error check for the system HD (where it runs when you boot) - everything was good?

FYI - I saw a post at another site that seems to have fixed my problems - thought I'd share it
Go to My Computer > Tools > Folder Options > View > Files and Folders
Uncheck the box for - Automatically search for network folders and printers
Mine was checked - after unchecking - seems like my entire system returned to the speed I was used to.
