    That`s perfectly normal.

    The system idle process means the amount of resources you have left. Not what`s being used.

    If you study the processes tab in task manager, you will see what processes are using in terms of resources. As these processes fluctuate, you will notice your system idle process fluctuates as well.

    Regards Howard :)

    Perhaps it is the Norton anti-virus program you have installed. It is probably scanning in the background and hogging resources while doing so.

    Well those intel integrated video cards really lag everything out, I had a PC with that. Is that your primary video?
