Run Resource Monitor (Admin Tools) and see what processes are consuming all your memory and CPU.

What you describe is certainly not normal and is likely a virus or some other malware.

Do you have good commercial Anti Virus installed?  If so, run a full scan.

It could be updating but then CPU and Memory would return to normal after a short time.

Download a copy of Microsoft Process Explorer, which displays system usage of common resources.  Click on the CPU column to sort processes by ascending or descending CPU use.  That will pinpoint the culprit.  Then let us know what you discover.
