When I start a program that requires a lot of CPU such as Steam, I notice it takes awhile (when I say awhile, I mean a long time) for it to start. I look at it in the Windows Task Manager and in Applications Tab it says its running, but when I go to the Processes Tab it has 0 CPU and the System Idle Process has 99 CPU and it stays like that for a long time. I was wondering is there a way that I can force CPU away from System Idle Process and give the CPU to another program?

System Idle Process being at 99 % is a good thing. This means your only using 1 % of your available resources, also you can set process priority by right clicking the process and selecting Set Priority. See attachment.

I tried that, it doesn't help. Isn't there a way to make the process of opening a program faster and having 99 CPU isn't a good thing when you can't use it.

Ok so your running Windows XP, right? How much RAM (Random Access Memory)? How big is your hard drive and how much free space do you have available? What Cpu do you have on the computer?
