Occasionally Windows Explorer on my laptop starts to consume 25% processing power and the fan goes in overdrive, and system to heat up, for apparently no reason. What could be the reason of this?
What's the best alternative to explorer with great integration, features, stability and lightweighted-ness?

Is not Explorer one of the default process in Windows? You can try different explorer like explorer++ and all, but explorer will be still running right?

This can be issue with indexing, or you may have added some network drive that no longer exist, or try disabling autoplay to reduce the process usage.

Try to figure, what exacytly causes the process hogging.

Check running processes. It happens sometimes due to corrupt files.
