Task Manager showing me red graph lines?!
Hello everyone, before hand I'd like to thank anyone who's dedicating their time and patience into my little question.

I decided to look at my Task Manager because my computer was reacting slowly even though I only have AIM up, when I looked at the overall processes it didn't have any significant amount of physical or virtual RAM being used nor did the CPU use surpass 25% or so. But when I went to the performance tab, I'm suddenly seeing red graph lines instead of the usual green ones.

I've never seen them before. I restarted my computer and it's responding nicely but those red graph lines are still present. Should it be anything to be concerned about?

Again, thank you for your time and patience, any help and/or suggestions are appreciated.

Go to the VIEW menu, and uncheck the option "Show Kernel Times". That should give you back your green lines again.

Let us know if this helped.

That definitely turned off the red graph lines, I guess it was nothing to be concerned about.

I also forgot to put up a screen shot, oops, oh well.

Thank you for your time. I wish I didn't spazz about everything, haha.
