On a company's computer there is a process constantly using the CPU. It is slowing down all other operations on this computer. Process is called windowsourcedllwrapper.exe. So far, my web search are pointing to Java or C++ being the culprit.

How can i found out where this process comes from and how can i prevent it from taking up the CPU

This is a standard computer running windows xp pro

Goto Start > Run > Typy in msconfig and goto the start up tap and find the process there.

Or you can use this program http://download.sysinternals.com/Files/ProcessExplorer.zip Its Process Explorer by Sysinternals.

I would download and use Autoruns from Microsoft (free).  This was original built by sysinternals before MS bought them.

It is like MSConfig but on steroids. Plus, it SHOWS EVERYTHING  that is starting with windows not just processes and Services. The you can find the source and stop it.

Process Explorer is nice but does not show what actually initiates the process just what is already running.
