Having installed System monitor there seems to be a lot of kernal usage going on when nothing but firewall and AVG are running. It goes past 25% max part time.Please what should the figure be and how to adjust it if it is too high?

What version windows?

you'd be surprise how much is actually going on in the background that you don't know (or need to know) about!

Win98 SE- but think this is more than it used to be on my ex Win 98 SE.

Ha- switched Virtual Memory back to let windows manage and kernal usage has halved. Any knowledgeable soul feel like telling me why?
