XP "System Idle Process" out of control!
by moebob24 - 11/7/07 4:19 PM
I have a serious problem. Each time I boot my computer it goes through the normal start up procedures and loads everything. Once complete my computer immediately begins an idle process that slows down my computer ridiculously! I don't see how there even can be an idle process when I am using the computer. The LED light that signals the computer thinking is solid and never blinks and the sound my hard drive being read is always going. I have included a picture of the Task Manager.
I have tried to kill the process several times but I am "denied access" from doing so. Any help or suggestions for this problem would be GREATLY appreciated!
By the way...
I'm running Windows XP media edition with 1GB of RAM and a Centrino processor.
Hope that helps.
