The explorer.exe process is a critical system process on the Microsoft Windows operating system. The process itself is responsible for Windows Explorer which allows users on the computer to browse through the file and document library on the hard drive. This process launches an application window and a graphical user interface to make browsing through directories clean and simple. When this process becomes overloaded or is using too much memory, various computing functions may be hampered as a result.
