My laptop seems to have a memory leak with explorer.exe. What happens is this, I'll be reading a forum and eventually pictures will no longer be displayed. I look in the task manager and explorer.exe is around 100,000 K. I end the task (explorer.exe) and then restart it and it's around 10,000 K. Also, my CPU usage isn't out of the ordinary which is 0% to 5% when at idle. I have done virus scans, highjackThis scans, and malware scans in safe mode with nothing coming up. Does anyone know what might cause the memory leak? I'm running XP Home. Here is a highjackthis report.

As you see Filter: text/html - {A8981DB9-B2B3-47D7-A890-9C9D9F4C5552} - C:\WINDOWS\mf6A0F.dll this refer to a library file that is made to redirect the search enginese like google or yahoo to some sites that go to search.com finaly
Delete that file mf6A0F.dll and the registry key you can do that by start---run- write regedit and search with ctrl+f and enter this text A8981DB9-B2B3-47D7-A890-9C9D9F4C5552 and delete that key.
Sorry for my bad english :)
