When I log into my account, nautilus uses about 90~95% of CPU. What is it doing?

Please be a little more elaborate. Is it just after you login? If the utilization normalizes, it may be just that nautilus is initializing your desktop. –  tinhed Mar 5 '11 at 10:48

Nautilus uses a lot of CPU when you log in as part of the process of loading your desktop and setting up a few things behind the scenes. So long as it returns to a normal level a little later, nothing is wrong with your system, and there is little you could do to change that happening.

thanks. I think it's unusual. :) –  Behzadsh Mar 6 '11 at 4:29
