Thanks for your reply. Only problem is this is affecting the performance. Also receiveng lots of fatal errors, and applications just not working until the cpu stops peaking at 100%.

Impossible. That process isn't really consuming any processing power; it's where Windows puts the idle usage.

OK then. Got any ideas as to why the processor seems to be tapped out? Also IE is not functioning properly?
