    Lately my computer's CPU has been running really hard (i have one of those gadgets on my windows sidebar). Usually it runs around 1-20% when I'm surfing the internet, but nowadays its running at 50%+ when I have no programs open and I'm just sitting on the desktop. I don't know what is going on. Maybe some of you do?

    Dell XPS M1210
    Intel Core 2 CPU T7200 @ 2.00GHz
    Windows Vista Home Premium

    Hope this info helps
