    it won't stop, usually its around 15% never more and running fast, but now the hour glass wont stop i've tried closing every program i can ie: spyware,antivirus - but nothing works - system idle cpu is still 90 and the pc is getting hot! to say the least it's not even worth using right now it's so slow, i've never encountered this problem before

    No idea. I'd check your msconfig (start>run>msconfig) and see if anything weird is loading.

    Your system Idle process should always be at 95% or higher, that means there are no other programs being sued and your system is idling. Try booting up in safe mode, and see if it still does it, then we'll go from there. To boot in safe mode restart your computer and press F8 during setup, then choose safe-mode.
