I have a new PC, with Windows 7, and a 980X cpu. What i'm wondering though, is why i keep getting CPU Usage of 8% even in idle mode?, well i looked at the task manager>processors, and it comes under the name of "host process for windows" or taskhost.exe LOCAL SERVICE.
I can close this and my CPU goes back to 0%, but do i have to keep doing this? - its a powerfull CPU (overclcoked to 4.2), but not sure this is needed.
Had to look to make sure it was on my computer running W/7 and yes it was in there.never noticed it before as I have never seen it using up any of the CPU. maybe give your security programs a run just in case.
