The System Idle Process isn't a real process. In practical terms it is simply a measurement of CPU time that is not being used. A high number is a good thing.

Whatever may be causing your problem, this isn't it.

As LMiller stated, high is good. As an example, I just checked running processes and my System idle is at 98%. Look at the other running processes for the culprit.

✔ Best Answer

Your problem is that you don't have enough Memory (RAM) to run
Windows XP. That was fine when it was new, but with 3 servcie packs,
you need at least 1 GB of RAM to run Windows XP. I have 2 GB of RAM
on all of my Windows XP Computers.
