rstidle is part of some Sonic BackOnTrack program, so it would stand to reason if you get rid of that, you'll get rid of that problem. The other idle process is normal and should be there. It confuses the crap out of a lot of people who don't stop to think about it being an IDLE process, but nothing we can do about it, you'll have to take it up with Microsoft's developers.
I am running win Xp, service pack 3 in Spanish.
The Windows Task Manager is showing CPU usage of 100% most of the time even when no programs are loading or executing. This makes the computer to run very sluggish, even locking up sometimes.
I noticed in the Task Manager that there are 2 idle processes ruining one is "proceso inactivo del sistema" (which means idle process) and one that reads "RstIdle.exe".
When I force the shut down of Rstidle.exe the CPU usage goes to normal operation.
After a while the Rstidle turns back on and the CPU usage goes back to 100%.
Why are there 2 idle processes running??? One in Spanish and one in English.
How do I stop (or get rid of) Rstidle.exe to restart ???
I've checked the system for viruses and took out some viruses the Avast AV didn't catch.
Any ideas, Please help.
