    my computer is running super slow. I ran a virus scan and it didn't find anything but when I look in the task manager something called System Idle Process is taking up over 80+% of my cpu and it wont let me turn it off. How can I stop this program?

    System Idle Process - The higher the number the less CPU is being used. The thing to look at is what process is using the other 20%.
