I have Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit RTM installed on my computer.
Windows 7 RTM is available since August 6, 2009 for Microsoft MSDN and Technet subscribers.
Also, ZAX 2010 (9.0.083.000) is installed.
I am experiencing that explorer.exe consumes 100% of the CPU upon boot of the computer.
But there is a workaround to solve this issue.
Steps to follow:
As it is officially documented by Zonealarm:
- Launch Windows Task Manager
- Switch to the Processes tab
- Highlight the explorer.exe process and shutdown it ('End Process' in OS lingo)
- Manually launch the explorer.exe through the menu: File -> New Task (Run...)
- Explorer.exe is back to normal.
9.0.083.000 version is " ... Windows 7 32-bit ready (Free compatibility update to run on Windows 7 when it is released) ..."
So, October 22, 2009 is a target date for the Microsoft release of the Windows 7 for consumers.
