    Hello gianitoo =)


    these two processes are from Panda Antivirus.... so make sure that it doesn't have any problem, like may be it needs a quick uninstall and reinstall !!
    And explorer.exe and svchost.exe.... do they run at high CPU in safemode also ??

    all xp computers run System Idle Process at 90 to 98 % cpu use its the computer looking affter its self but as you open moor programs the cpu use goes down its a normal function of windows if your computer is freezing and acting up you have a problam with some thing elce
    svchost.exe runing high is a posable virus or spy ware do a full system scan with a online av scaner and see if you have a narsty in the computer
