My cpu hit the roof many-a-times until i figured it was the harddrive. Just replaced with a new drive and all is ok again.
That was years ago though. So you might want to look at your drive and do a test on it, but back up first though.

If your CPU usage is high something in the task list should be showing you what is pushing the CPU usage up.

While the CPU usage is high you can change the sort order in the task manager by clicking on on the CPU tab to organize the processes by CPU Usage.

Why don't you do that and post back whats running in CPU usage order?

Task manager will tell you what process is using 47% of the CPU capacity.
