    Kernel times only give a broad view of what's happening, if they only spike to about 8% under load, it's probably not worth investigating, if it gets over about 12-16%, user programs will feel 'laggy'. A fairly easy test for a bad gfx card or driver (poss. not enough power to it) is to watch the kernel graph as you drag a window around - on a well-behaved graphics subsystem, there'll be no spike, if the whole system is good, kernel time will be minimal, 1-3% tops. Non-vital drivers, like wireless, sound, LAN, can be disabled via DevMan to test their effect. Resource Monitor, DPClat and LatencyMon can all be used to try to track down the culprit but it takes time to interpret the outputs and translate them into something testable. Brief spikes when opening, closing, etc. are all normal - spend some time on your own system when you get a little free time to get a feel for how it works.

    Sure Tom, use it, that's why I suggested it :) Get hin to add 'Show kernel times' too, it'll help work out if it's just something like a bad driver at the root of it.

    Hi Tom,

    Screenshot in Post #5 here might be a misconfig. of TaskMan; in W7, I can choose 1 graph per core or 1 graph all CPU's - View Menu. Can Vista's TaskMan be set the same?

    Hi, Tom.

    I'm sorry, I forgot to post back that I downloaded the image and placed it on Photobucket. It was so nice of you to "update" the image for me. I really appreciate it.

    Hi Tom,

    Thanks for the visit, I will send you some links on basic networking first for you to read via PM if that's okay with you. Regarding WPA2, it's not that easy to crack especially depeding on the pass-phrase that you are using, make it complex and use of common sense helps. It is also advisable to change the SSID, by dafault SSID is the name of your router and this is not a good idea. I have a great article for you to read which I can PM you as well. Secured your network properly with modern network devices and properly configured your router/firewall all add up. I am grateful that you have such an interest on network security, this can be complex as well.
