Ive just noticed that whenever I use the gadget that my cpu usage ( dual 3.0ghz ) shoots from an average of 11-15% to 60%, and my poor system kicks all the fans into overdrive... has anyone else noticed this increase??

Hi Tews,
I used to have that problem with my old machine. The fix for me was using process explorer (or other similar utility) to set the process priority to idle.

EDIT: The process in question is sidebar.exe

Hey Zig!
From your snip, I can't tell which process you set to idle. Is it sidebar.exe?
