Hi All,

w3wp.exe process is running at about a 100% CPU at all times. Any thoughts?

Once restart the World wide web service.
Check the event viewer once.
A free downloadable 3rd party tracking program for IIS  called *IISPeek* is there which will help us to determine the processes of IIS.
Download it and try once.
Also check the performance counters once.
