    High CPU Usage: System "NT Kernel & System"

    This problem just occurred. I am running Windows Vista Ultimate x64, 4GB of RAM, Intel QX6700, 8800 GTS 640, EVGA 680i SLI motherboard.

    My OS is maxing out all four cores at 100% making my computer very slow. Windows Task Manager shows the following image:



    http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w...leshooting.jpg

    Those are outdated screenshots, I outlined the part where it usually shows 99%. The pictures I linked you to are more normal usage signs.

    Basically, where I should have System Idle Processes of 99%...I am having this "System - NT Kernel & System" using all my processing power.

    The first time this happened, it came out of the blue as my computer had already been on for several hours. I rebooted twice and the problem persisted.

    Could really use some help here, thanks.

    Check for viruses, spyware, adware, malware, anyware that is possibly messing up your system for starters. Vista is my least favorite of MSs OSs for the reason it's very demanding to run for an os.

    Please go to the TrendMicro site and download the latest version of Hijackthis and re-post your log.
