I have an MSI laptop running Windows 10. Everything has been working fine since setting it up with Windows 10 a month ago or so but recently when I turn on the laptop, explorer.exe uses a quarter of the CPU power. Is that normal? As soon as I click restart explorer.exe it goes down to 0.1% and the fan eases off.

I have tried searching for malware, nothing found. Sfc/ runnow, also checked desktop for any broken shortcut icons etc.

Not sure what to do?

Cheers

It's false alarm and known bug.
