Suggestion:

% Write the following program:

    +-------+
    | Until |
    | Break +--+
    +-------+  |
               |
            +--+--+    +---------+
            |  OK +--->| Counter |
            +-----+    +---------+

% Run the Windows System Monitor (SYSMON.EXE) for Win95/98.  There are
   different but analogous tools on NT under "Administrative Tools".  Select
   "Kernel Processor Usage".

% Run the program.  In absence of any other actions, kernel processor
   usage goes to zero.

% As a control experiment, replace the OK button with a 1-second DELAY,
   which is an infamous CPU hog.  Run the program again.  Kernel processor
   usage is pegged.
