(MOD, feel free to move this to the OS forum)
Ever since i've had this Neo2/3200 combo i have noticed occasional unexplained CPU usage under "system" in the task manager using anywhere from 30-99% of the CPU time.
(I've run NAV/Adaware/Spybot with no problems showing up)
Whenever i notice a big system slowdown/halt i can bring up the task manager (slowly) and i'll find "system" @ 99% usage.
Of course i'm thinking theres a nasty virus in the kernel but that doesn't seem to be the case. Today i downloaded a trial of security task manager to spy on all the processes and try to figure this thing out.
What i have found was "send to A64 on port0" looking for a "missing system file"?
I'm thinking this has to be somewhat common as this has happened with several different OS installs (all winxp) with different configurations/drivers.
So the question i have is: Has anyone else noticed this "system process" hogging alot of CPU time? And if so, what needs to be done to correct this? A64 driver perhaps or a missing DLL file?
I have never seen mention of this before but it's been pretty consistant since i put this rig together.
