When i select to view kernels, my cpu usage is usually displayed half red. I also have noticed(that since it started doing this) horrible performance from my CPU. Its actually so bad that i ant even run rise of nations, and most people should know thats not that much of a hardware demanding game. Im running a Pentium 4 (non HT) running at 2.4 Ghz with 768 mb of RAM. If anyone has any ideas i would greatly appreciate some help.
