CWatters,
Although the 90 to 97% system idle process is normal, the situation which
The Catcher describes, and which I am also experiencing, is not normal: At
the same time the system idle process is 90%+, Task Manager overall is
contradicting itself by showing high CPU usage (70%+). Please see my two
earlier posts.
