Hello,

My system has suddenly become very unresponsive and when I run top, XFree86 reports that it is typically taking between 20-40% of the CPU, even when the machine is completely idle.

'ps aux' reports even more! (see below)

Does anyone have any ideas what tools I can use to get to the bottom of this? I'm sorry to ask what may be obvious but I'm a relative newbie..

My machine is suddenly almost completely useless...

Thank you!

Nick
