hi there,

i recently purchased a new system generally as follows:

ASUS A8N-SLi Deluxe mobo
AMD 64 x2 4400+ cpu
2 x SATA drives
Radeon 850 XT graphics card
2 MB Ram
Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS
Windows XP Home

machine came with windows pre-installed and nothing else on

all i have done is install office and a couple of games and all my files.

when idling, the CPU usage is around 45% to 50% where one core is doing nothing and the other is almost flat out...

(generally, idling has msn and AVG running)

i have tried (via msconfig) booting without the 'System Services' and 'Startup Items', but cpu usage remains high.

from the Processes, the System Idle Process is at 99, all others are at 00

any help would be appreciated.
