system idle process
« on: August 22, 2005, 06:51:24 AM »
       sir iam using windows xp operating system and i have p4 with 256 mb ram with 80 gb hardisk. My computer was working fine and suddenly it has become very slow when i boot the system and the system is reading the hardisk for long time like 4 to 5 min and when i open up the taskbar its showing is "System Idle process" as 96% if i try to open any applicatio its taking long time to open. iam not keeping my system idle even though it shows "System idle process" as 96% how can i rectify this. please suggest me something. when i ever i boot my computer its taking *censored* lot of time to open some application. Thank you
