I decided to remove this subject from my other post since its not related to the original topic.
I have a Dell Inspiron 7000 laptop that recently (within the last 10 days or so) I've noticed that the fan seems to be running all the time. A couple of times it (the computer) has frozen up on me (noticed the fan isn't running then!). The LT is not kept on all the time.
Per someone's suggestion (sorry, can't remember -- webbee? perhaps) I looked at the task manager -- the only thing using a lot of CPU usage is the SYSTEM IDLE PROCESS .... ??? Other things come and go but that seems to be the biggest user -- hovering anywhere in the 90-80, but sometimes dropping down to 30s. Not sure exactly what that does or doesn't do.
The AV software is not even in the top 5 listed -- it's usually the SIP, taskmgr.exe, iexplore.exe, explorer.exe (and that was 1 just a second ago when I looked!).
