Do you mean "System Idle Process"? If you do... it's normal for it to be running around 99%... unless you're doing something. Maybe I'm not understanding exactly what you're referring to.

Oops Sorry! Is this a desktop or laptop. If its a desktop, try shutting down and pulling the AC plug out for a minute or two, then plug it back in and restart. If it's a laptop, remove the battery for a minute or two.

Not really my idea... just some googling and this actually fixed it for some people... actually quite a few people. Nothing to lose except a few minutes.
