Solved various issues i cant solve, so looking for help.

Specs: Windows 7
vid of current system state
my toshiba satellite is bsod'ing consistently, and upon inspection i found that my system idle process is chewing up with 90% system idle. my system.exe is thrashing my hard disk, and making clones of itself. svchost is also cloning as well as if i have a browser open it is as well. i'm running 4 gigs of ram on professional, and even with working on computers for 3 years now, i still cant identify the problem, so i want to see if anyone else is having this same issue. and if they know how to fix it(as i was taking this video, i realized that my resource monitor also seized up and would not display any other information, let it sit for 5 minutes afterward and no change it kept doing this.)

1. System Idle is what it says it is - time the processor is idle. You would it expect it to be between 90 and 100 % most of the time.

2. You expect there to be many svchost processes, running various services.

From what you show us (with the proviso that you dart around rather a lot in the screencast) things look normal on your PC.

Restart your computer, let it settle for a few minutes then see how the graphs pan out after running them a further few minutes. In the lists you can click the tops of the columns so that things are sorted in size order. As per previous post "chewing up with 90% system idle", means only 10% in use - quite reasonable.

If you are getting BSOD's the starting point is to collect the full error message and the first set of figures. If a file name is mentioned then that is useful information too. BSOD's can be hardware or software, often tricky to determine even with all the information, far more tricky without it.

As far as I know there is no system.exe in Windows 7. If you can see one, for starters run MalwareBytes and see what it finds (probably a good idea anyhow):
Download from green icon top right

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
