    that is perfectly normal, the idle process shows how much of hte cpu speed is left.

    So then how can 15% of the cpu be used up and 96% of it free???

    if your computer doesnt act funky, then it is perfectly normal. dont worry about it.

    Have a Pentium4 with HyperThreading or an AMD X2 ? Maybe it is a multi-core thing which is playing with your Task Manager.

    Does the Performance-tab in the Task Manager show more than one CPU ?

    It's happening again, don't know why, cpu usage shows 30% but system idle says 99 (so 0-1 should really be used, instead windows is saying 30)

    My cpu diode is running near load temps as well...what the hell is going on here? No viruses/malware/whatever on this comp

    Even TuneUp's Process Manager is showing the same thing.

    Everest is reporting the cpu utilization at around 30% as well, and I cannot see any process(es) that are taking up any cpu usage!

    Please anyone!
