eh, this happenes to my computer sometimes, ever since I got my new 250gb seagate hard drive (7200 rpm)
The only thing I can do is restart my computer.. or wait, although I do think its time to upgrade my brothers (now mine) 5 year old 1.3 cpu

Is this while the PC is idle? If so, then it's supposed to do that. The system idle process just runs when there's nothing else to do. Sort of like twiddling your thumbs.

ah,

and so, here is the biggest misinterpretation with the system idle process

if you open your task manager while the CPU is hardly working, and look to processes, you will notice that your system idle process is taking 90% or such of the CPU time.


HA

THIS FIGURE IS MISUNDERSTOOD!!!!

this figure represents how much cpu time has not even been requested by anything you are currently working with



theres your answer
