Ah, ....

Tomos:   There is a registry option in some of the file managers that allow substitution of , for example, Xplorer2 as the default file manager.  I believe in that case (haven't tried it yet) Win Explorer never runs. 

I have noticed that Xplorer2 chews up a lot of CPU at times; that >could< be because it is using some Win Wxplorer DLL's if Win Explorer is not turned off

 ;) I picked Xplorer2 after searching many chat groups, but found it didn't solve my problems with Windows Explorer:  Even with FastFind turned off, with only my eMail handler running, and no web activity, my system was frequently bogged down and slow.  Process Manager usually shows Windows Explorer using 92 to 97 % of the CPU cycles. 

One reply hints at this, but what file manager is better as a resource hog?  What are the issues that I can investigate to set a correct install/priority to keep a file manager from slowing other applications down?

TIA
