Excellent. Made me laugh. Thanks for that.

Living Room / Windows XP - system process - high CPU use - any ideas?
« on: October 19, 2005, 09:04 AM »
I've just downloaded Process Tamer in the hope that it might help to tame or explain the high CPU use of the system process on my system - it should run at about 0 or 1 percent but it's regularly (every few minutes) running up to +90% ... which is ridiculous and causes constant system slowdowns.
Note: I'm not referring to the system idle process - this is a separate process which has the name system and which is detailed on various websites as a virus-free Windows counter process.
Rather oddly, Process Tamer doesn't even show the system process but WinTask 5 and the old faithful Windows Task Manager do.
Constantly worrying about viruses, trojans, etc, I've run various versions of the latest virus checkers (Norton, AVG, NOD32, etc) but they all report no viruses, trojans, etc.
Can anybody help?

To all/anybody at,

Thanks for the Process Tamer.
May I ask a question? I'm using Windows XP SP2. The "system" process (not system idle) regularly ramps up to +90% CPU usage. I've run multiple virus checks which have found nothing. Any ideas?

I am more than happy to make a donation but I prefer to use PayPal for all of my online transaction - add PayPal and I'll make a donation.

All the best,
