So when I open up the task manager, it says the "system" process (Image Name: System | User Name: SYSTEM | CPU: 30-50% | Mem Usage: 236k ) is ALWAYS using up 30-50% of my process speed. It's like that as soon as I turn my computer on and I just recently restored my computer to how it arrived at my house. (I used a restore CD called "Alienware Respawn" -- but I think it's actually Norton Ghost or something.)
Does this mean there's a problem with the hard drive or the processor or something (or is it somehow possible for some malware to linger through a restore)? What should I do / replace to fix this problem? If it is a problem with the hard drive, can reformatting possibly fix it?
EDIT: Also, just a little note, my computer is relatively new. It's less than half a year old.
