Hello everyone,

I need help please, my CPU usage is very high at about 95%, and it seems system idle process its causing it.
Honestly i`m not too good at it to know what to do to solve this problem
I`d attach my Process Explorer report if it might help, just could find a way to do it
sorry

i`m running windows vista 32bit

Thanks a lot in advance !

System Idle Process always shows the unused percentage of CPU..... so showing that it is using 95% means all the tasks you are running are only utilizing 5%... everything is very normal.
