I think its essential. Anyway it only runs when there is no other CPU activity.

yep its just the way windows works. if you get stutters try downloading ad-aware or another spyware program and see if that helps.

thanks for the help, I run system mechanic 5, diskkeeper 8.0 and spybot and addaware every day And they tell me my system is running fine, is there somthing eles I could get that would do a better job of scanning my computer. Or maybe it just me my Fps stay's where I put them, it just them little freezes and jerks that bug me

Dave, Ken Salter's program FS AutoStart will give you the option to shut down idle task. Do a search on Ken Salter in the file library. BTW he is also the moderator of this forum.Bob

Idle Process isn't a true process. All it does is calculate the percent of available CPU cycles. The higher the value the better (more CPU available for applications to use). It can't be stopped.Doug
