Not sure if this is related to the explorer ram usage. I'm running win 8.1 64 bit. I had the same explorer issue a few months ago. I had at one point uninstalled WSA to try some new software. After a week I reinstalled WSA and my normal configuration. I almost always have WSA paired with sandboxie and the weekly product du jour. This week I believe that I had CFW installed. I happened to check out task manager one day. (yeah I'm a geek) I noticed that explorer was using 290K. Ok that's fine. I then look down at the next process and its sandboxie service. Its chugging away at 280K and then sandboxie control is at 285K. Now mind you nothing is running sandboxed either. It's idle and running that high. I then look at WSA control process and realize that it's monitoring both of these process. Not sure why but they are. I change it allow and half expect the problem to be fixed. Well it's not. I reboot just to make sure. It is allowed in WSA and it's still running high.
ANyone else having these issues? Why does WSA keep changing sandboxie process to monitor? It wasn't the first time it happened either.
