explorer.exe is occupying 100% cpu without opening it

This process:

Code: Select all

Wine Staging.app/Contents/Resources/wine/lib64/../bin/wine64-preloader C:\windows\system32\explorer.exe /desktop
is occupying 100% cpu after I woke up. It says the process started 2 days ago. Why it's constantly going up in the background while I didn't open any wine application?

That’s very strange I’ve seen wine process stick around sometimes usually due to a crash in a process so I just kill it.

Usually you can use;

Code: Select all

wineserver -k
Just ensure the prefix veritable is set unless your using the default ~/.wine prefix then it won’t matter but it won’t always work if wineserver is already closed.

I usually kill them from process monitor or via terminal’s “kill” command but I hate doing since it don’t want to kill other wine processes I am still running.
