Explorer.exe taking up 25% CPU on Blade Workstations

We have c7000 Blade Enclosures with xw460c Blade Workstation that are connected to via the dc73 Thin Clients where explorer will take up 25% of the CPU and hang there and lock up the PC. The only way to correct the issue is to kill the explorer.exe process and then restart it again with task manager.

These workstations are running home grown applications and basic office apps. We are running the same applications on stand alone PC's, and are only seeing the issue with explorer.exe taking up 25% of the CPU on the blade workstations.

Has anyone seen this issue and know how to resolve it? We have tried numerouse fixes to no avail.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Hello.
We've seen similar issues but we're not 100 sure if it is explorer, adobe acrobat and/or Outlook that is the problem. I've see a few tips on how to make Acrobat more efficient. I'll come back after som more investigation
