The Windows XP task manager (ctrl-alt-del, then task manager, then processes) shows all processes with their CPU. One of them is 'idle', and that's not a process, but just the CPU doing nothing.
So I don't understand where you can see 90% coupled to no process at all. Can you explain?
My sister's computer is running incredibly slow. I came home from college and i knew it'd be a mess...after going through, finding all the spyware i could/deleting it it is still running slow.
The windows task manager says the CPU usage is at 90% with no programs running...what's going on?
Intel Celeron 2.6GHz
Windows XP home edition
thanks for your help
