System idle process runs when system isn't idle

  1. On my friend's computer I am having this problem. Even when the computer is in use system idle process uses up 90%-100% of the CPU. This can be directly seen in the computer's overall performance. Does anybody know how to kill system idle process?

    Its 100% normal, its just showing what percent idle the processor is. Unlike the others, which show how much they are using.

    Oh, Ok lol. Some *****s on another site said it was a process that your computer starts when it is idle.
