System using up CPU resources

I just installed XP on my Asus G50V-x1.  It came with Vista and I was unhappy with it's resource usage.  So, I installed XP.  Just sitting there, the System process is using 80%+ of my CPU.  I've looked around, but I've not seen any questions referring to the System process being the culprit for high CPU usage.
