the percentages are decieving...

98% just means of the amount of CPU power taken, 98% is being used by
explorer.exe

in other words, 2% of your total CPU power is being used, and 98% of that
CPU power is used by explorer.exe

when your computer just finished booting up, and you have nothing running,
the System idle process uses 98% of the CPU power being used. but if you look
in Task manager only 1 or 2 % of your full processor power is being used.
