Question

Hi,

 

I have an HP Compaq mini computer that come installed with BackOnTrack.

 

I noticed that the computer is very very slow and the process rstidle.exe that belongs to the BackOnTrack package is consuming all the spare CPU (more than 60% CPU all the time).

I had to kill the process in order to continue my work.

 

Is there any way to track down why does rstidle.exe is so busy?

Is there any option to control when will it work, and when will it stop?

 

Thanks

 

Nir

it does not do anything reasonable, it checks if the windows system restore is running and tries to remind you switch it of and runs other things as well. Not needed, you can kill and stop it completely if you like.
