Process Explorer

Select the Threads Tab, and double click the highest CPU hog, and paste the contents here please...

If the CPU Hog is a svchost.exe..... Double click the offencing SVCHost.exe and make note of the Services listed in the Services Tab......Next, try a process of elimination, by stopping each service one by one, until the cpu usage drops......
