Is it okay to delete wmpnscfg.exe? I know it's System Idle Process. I used something to disable it, it killed the process but it re-ran itself. Can I delete this process safely?


EDIT: It's been taking up a lot of CPU. Around 92 or so when I check.

That particular service is used to share windows media player libraries. If you do not want it running all the time you can disable the service manually by
Clicking Start > Run > services.msc and pressing OK.

Locate the service and set it to "Disabled", restart and it shouldn't come back. If it does then go to the recovery tab and reset all three boxes to take no action, this may work as well.

Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream ?

FWIW:  System Idle process is just an indicator of system resources that are NOT used.  This process is significant only when you are having problems with CPU usage, generally the number reflected for System Idle Process should be in the 50-100 range, IMO.  A high number indicates that you are not taxing your system, it's not something that is negative or undesired.
