    System interrupts, 0.1%, normal process ?


    Hello there. I recently got my new computer and I'm a fresh user of Windows 8. I'm happy and all I was just wondering if the system interrupts process is a normal process, should it be there at all ? It does no harm so far (I think), I just wasn't sure after reading up on it if the complaints were only because the process was usually a high %, or if the process itself is bad.

    Thanks in advance.

    The "System Interrupts" entry is not a real process, just a convenient way to show statistics relating to system interrupts. A number of other utilities do it this way as well. This is a normal and necessary system activity and is of no concern unless the numbers are high, which in this case they are not.

The process "System" is showing in task manager to be using 100% of the HDD (100% activity, not storage) and running from anything between 5MB/s to 60MB/s. This is causing real problems for me as often programs will just stop responding because System is hogging the disk and they can't load...
