I'm also using ME on a Dell and I'm called Steve too. Guess what else? My System Monitor tells me that my CPU usage is 100%. *grin* Are you getting popups telling you this or is it the System Monitor? If it's just the monitor then don't worry about it too much unless your performance is affected. The SysMon in ME is brutal. It always says 100% usage! At the moment I have Outlook and IE open - two of the biggest resource hoggers admittedly - but no performance problems. Steve One of The Collective http://learn.at/ahh "Always listen to experts.
