I installed Process Explorer but haven't got the hang of it yet.
At the bottom it tells me I'm using between 3-5% CPU have a Commit Charge of 28% on 68 processes and my Physical Usage is 46.33%.

Why bother?
It's easier just to add some gadget on sidebar

According to my experience,your PC is probably idle,and doing apsolutely nothing.

DaRonRon, I went into Task Manager and I get 64 processes using 1.92GB of Memory.
Pretty similar to what other indicators are telling me.
My core temps are in their 30s and my GPU is at 45c. I'm now using 1or2% of my CPU.
Should I be concerned?
