Hidden task is using 45% of CPU time every 4 seconds
Posted on 2004-03-28
I juste reformated a PC and I noticed mouse cursor just froze for a moment every 4 seconds. If I take a look to Performance graph in Task Manager I can see a pulse up to 45% each 4 seconds (about 4 seconds). However if I go to Processes tab, I can see CPU Usage go from 3 to 45% each 4 seconds but the Image Name "System Idle Process" stays to 98-99% all time. Windows Update all done. I did some reboot and it occur one time that this "Hidden Task" did not show up. Any idea?
