That is the graph at the start of my computer. No programs running. System Idle Process is going nuts.

System Idle is suppose to be at 99 or 100. Think of it as a reserve for the unused CPU. It gets dumped there. But if it's not at 99 or 100, something else is using it. You have to figure that out.

Oh ok, it is around 99-100. It just seemed a little abnormal for the graph to spike so much when I have no programs running.

It does seem more sluggish than it should be... I've got some pretty nice parts in this thing and it doesn't seem like it is up to par

remove 'O23 - Service: Viewpoint Manager Service - Viewpoint Corporation - C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Common\ViewpointService.exe'

your cpu usage on startup is terrible and this entry is my best guess at why but my pc is at 0-1% cpu usuage on startup in xp on a 3.0ghz p4.

I got rid of the viewpoint manager service, and the graphs still read the same.

When the graph is going crazy, take a screenshot of the 'Processes' tab.
