Try giving your idle control a clean out.

Samantha is right in first choosing the idle speed controller. It sits on top of your throttle body. 2x 10mm bolts hold it on. Give it a clean using WD40 and a throttle/carby cleaner. If that fails try and borrow one from someone else you know who doesnt have idle problems on their EF.
If after borrowing one and it fixes it, replace your idle speed controller. They have a stepper motor in them that can get worn out. Cleaning the ISC sometimes works when there is dirt in it but if it doesnt help once its clean then the electric motor (in the ISC) is shagged.
