The system idle process is a common system process that uses up the CPU, however my concern is the "CPU Time" in the task manager. It is curretly 2340:24:15, roughly around 90 days. The event viewer has been  showing the following:

Application Popup
Event ID: 333
An I/O operation initiated by the Registry failed unrecoverably. The Registry could not read in, or write out, or flush, one of the files that contain the system's image of the Registry.

I predict that restarting the computer will resolve this issue, however, I was wondering if there was a way to resolve this issue without reboot, since employees are using the server? Thanks ahead of time!

What concern do you have about it?  The "CPU" column is the immediate amount of CPU power being used by a process.  The "CPU Time" column is a cumulative statistic, i.e., how much of the processor's time has been taken by the process since it started.  If you have high CPU idle, it just means you have extra processing power not being used.

The registry event you referenced could indicate problems with the drive or array.  Run chkdsk as a maintenance item.  Defragment the drive if necessary.  If you are using RAID, be familiar with the status of the array.
