When I use iTunes, it makes my computer use 100% CPU, but the task manager says it is in the "System Idle Process",
Odd. The System Idle Process indicates the unused percentage of the CPU. So, taken at face value, a System Idle Process of 100% indicates that your processor is zeroing out, rather than maxxing out.
In Processes, is the sum of System Idle process and the other processes adding up to more than a 100%? If so, does perfmon give a clearer idea of whether or not the system is maxing or zeroing when iTunes is launched?
Task Manager may not calculate CPU usage correctly on Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, or Windows XP
