CPU Overload - Squeeze


My SysMon shows my CPU at an almost constant 100%.
Process Table and top show very little CPU drain.
What the heck is up with this?

Suffice i to say, I'm not getting much work done.I've been plagued
by innumerable system freezes, necessitating hard shut-downs and lost work.

How can I find out what is running that is throttling my machine?

So the header lines from "top" show (close to) zero ?.
I can't get anything useable from that upload site - post the first 20 lines or so from "top". As text, here (inline) - and use [code] tags so it remains readable.
