I'd bet money that Vista's just reading the processor usage wrong. (I don't know what would make it do that, but I bet that Microsoft support would...)
If your processor usage was really that high, you wouldn't have any questions about it. When I have any issues with those OS processes locking the CPU at >90%, it will literally take 15 seconds for the start menu to open after I click it. I go into the task manager to kill the process, but that also literally takes a minute or two, because of how long it takes for the OS to open up task manager, change tabs and then pop up that stupid box asking if I *really* want to stop the process... and the to actually stop it. Blech. svchost is my mortal enemy. >:/
