so i downloaded real player for it's app real player downloader now i find at random the damn thing is starting two proceses, both use over 90% in CPU i can shut them down but they are replaced by a third process, inactive system process it's cpu usage goes from 87 to 98 it will shift trough all the numbers between those two, but it's a hollow process since my current CPU usage is of 2% to 14%

People still use Real Player ? I thought it was dead a decade ago when it started incorporating bloatware into its installation. I know that from that moment on I dont use it.

VLC all the way!

Those'll be background processes that open up on startup automatically probably.

It's Real Player that sucks, which is why I never use it.

Download RealAlternative if you need to open them. I use MPC-HC as my main media player for opening standalone files.

Either your system sucks, or Real Player sucks. Have you looked at VLC?
chekka i have a decent laptop, real player is buggy, meh i might wind up uninstaling it since real player downloader is still buggy (tells me i need adobe flash player to work with .flv files which is the default format it downloads any video and i have flash player but it wont acknowledge it) and i use VLC for reproducing video.

hiigaran probably is the process you mention, the name i posted differs since i translated it from spanish

inactive system process? you mean system idle process? that process is supposed to have a high value. put simply, it shows what percentage of your CPU is idle (its more complicated than that, but thats all you need to know).
