I'm running Vista (business) on a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ190 (using Sophos as antivirus). Using Process Explorer I see that the system Idle Process is consistently taking up 90(ish) % CPU usage.

Looking at the threads posting I see two coming from the same Start Address:

How do I calm down the CPU and/or kill the treads??

Hi vecc22,

Please note that the system idle process should be around 97 or 98%, therefore if you're seeing a high percentage in the system idle process, your computer is running correctly. Is the computer showing signs of running incorrectly?
