In Windows NT-based operating systems, the System idle process is the system idle task: it tracks how much of the CPU's time is being utilized and issues the HLT instruction to cut the processor's power usage. The percentage of time spent in idle can be seen in the Windows Task Manager.

its wat detects the cpu everything is taking up i think... anyways its harmless even though in task manager (not the virus scan) it shows it taking up alot of cpu. it doesnt take up any cpu at all i dont think
ist nur ein leerlauf prozess.KURZ: "der rechner hat nichts zu tun"
Ich habe gehört das der Prozess wenn der Computer mehr als 30 Min nicht genutzt wird eine Optimierungsroutine starten lässt und auch Systemwiederherstellungspunkte erstellt.Bin mir aber nicht sicher.
