    My computer is running ridiculously slow, and the system idle process is at
    90 CPU.

    Is there something I can do to fix this?

  2. This is not a problem. The system idle process should be using all the
    available CPU time when there is nothing else to do: that is what it is
    desgned to do.

    If your system is running slowly, there must be a different reason for it.
    And this is not the best forum in which to be seeking advice.

  3. System idle at 90% means something is using 10% and the rest is free.
    How is the system memory usage?
