SYSTEM takes more than half of the CPU resources!!

    I got the windows xp running on top of my mac, and while I work on windows side, especially when running compiler, I found from windows task manager that there is a process called SYSTEM taking up 1/3 to >1/2 of the CPU resources, such that my compiling is slow, and the fan of my mac blows up heavily, until it finally crashes and I got a glue screen.

    Is this a bug? has anyone had similar experiences?

    which mac model and OS please

    I add an extra heat sink by standing my MacBook Pro on a metal plate

    Overheating is a mac problem dicusssed in the comp.sys groups for example

    Have you added one of those fan control utilities?
