What are you talking about?.. they are perfectly readable.. they aren't when they are scaled down.. but I just click on them and they go full size.
You have way too many .exes running there man. Not exactly what I would consider idle.
Heres mine right now.
Much less stuff running as you can see. Basically, the only way to fix this problem is to close most of those .exes, and stop the ones you don't need from starting when you login to windows.
If you go to start>run type in "msconfig" and go to the startup (NOT SERVICES, NEVER USE MSCONFIG TO CONFIGURE SERVICES) tab, you'll see a bunch of crap listed there, most of them will probably have check marks in the boxes on the left hand side. Go through and uncheck whatever you don't want starting as you login to windows. Not only will this reduce your cpu usage while idling, but it will also free up some memory and drastically improve boot time.
I only run virus scanners when i'm actually going to use them, otherwise I shut it all down.
