Lack of memory resources is the usual explanation of 100% CPU utilization.

Are you using adobe 6? if you are update to adobe 7 there are serious issues with 6. I was having issues with 6 on all my clients systems once 7 was installed (Just an update) all worked fine.

Corrupted install of programs. Most likely and virus are spyware on the problem.

Next time you restart your computer bring up task manager right away ( and leave it visible). Click on the processes tab and sort by CPU utilization. So that the highest utilization process is at the top. When the system crashses you will see which process is using the most CPU and this will help focus your research. BTW I had a similar issue (although no crash) when I added anti-spyware tools to my PC.
