I have exactly this same sutuation. The CPU usage in Task Manager (TM) shows
70% or more all the time (in the lower TM status bar, in the TM "Performance"
chart, and in the minimized TM icon in Windows Taskbar), while none of the
processes in TM "Processes" tab show any meanigful usage. System Idle
Process is in the 90% + range for CPU usage, yet the overall TM CPU usage is
simultaneously showing 70% +. The computer is slow; it is behaving like the
CPU usage is at 70% utilization, not 90% idle. The Commit Charge is at
312,568k / 639,580k. I have tried several Anti-spyware, anti-virus, and worm
removal tools, and I have also defragged. Nothing has helped. Any
recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
