The system idle process on my computer takes up a lot of cpu resources, fluctuates constantly with great
variations and causes my computer to "studder" meaning videos and sounds are choppy, programs open in
slowmo.... and everything else also. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I almost replied no before even checking because I didn't think an exclamation mark would be the problem but I checked and sure enough there was one, a yellow exclamation mark on a ramdisk that has never worked and that I had forgotten about. You're good..... Do you think disabling it would make things better, I'll try it anyway.

Let me know what think, thanks...
