View Full Version : Windows task manager..how much you have running??
I just installed 512 ddr and went to see what my system is running and I have 30 things going?? no wonder I am slow!
My system idle process is always maxed at 95-99%?
Do you think I have a virus?
Nope your fine.
46 for me.
The System Idle Process just shows how much of the cpu is left over or is idle...it being at 95-99% is good. It shows your machine is waiting for you to use it and the background services aren't taxing it. 30 processes running isn't that big of a deal either. If you're worried about a virus, just get a name brand virus scanner and make sure you update it and run a virus scan.
Tasks: 99 total, 1 running, 97 sleeping, 0 stopped, 1 zombie
Cpu(s): 4.0% us, 1.3% sy, 0.0% ni, 94.7% id, 0.0% wa, 0.0% hi, 0.0% si
Mem: 515824k total, 502912k used, 12912k free, 147792k buffers
Swap: 136512k total, 83172k used, 53340k free, 114148k cached
Yours sounds pretty normal to me.
me too, i have 31 processes running and all is well. No cause for concern.
Thanks, I was concerned that I had a virus that was not being detected. I really did not want to reformat my computer.
