Hello & welcome to Tech Guy Forum.

When did the problem begin?
Can you associate the onset of the problem to the addition or removal of hardware or software, to include an update to Windows or your antivirus program? Have you run a registry cleaner recently? I am NOT suggesting that you run a reg cleaner.

Does the problem occur ALL of the time, on EACH & EVERY restart of your computer, but only sometimes? If not ALL of the time, for what period of time?

When the CPU is running at 100%, open task manager.
RIGHT click a blank spot on your task bar.
Left click "task manager".
Left click the "processes" tab.
Left click "CPU". That will change the order [ sort ] the processes according to CPU usage. Which process is / processes are using the greatest %age of your CPU?

Look at the titles of these articles. Do any of them describe your problem?;

just thought i'd say i have a very similar problem to this...It coincided with having been infected with myway.mywebsearch and/trojan doenloader virus these have (i think both been cleaned as norton didnt pick it up,spybot did but couldnt remove it and kaspersy online scanner found it and i got help finding the problem on a website like pc is now seemingly clear but it runs at 100 % alot and keeps freezing etc.Are we clear of a viris or is it a hardware problem>.....i dont know ...think i should post a seperate thread??

k h:
Within the past 7 days, I have encountered 3 computers running at 100% and svchost.exe being involved.
2 were not caused by malware.

It is possible for a virus, spyware, or other malware to cause almost any computer problem.

If you think your computer has malware, left click the red / white triangle & ask the moderator to move your thread to the malware removal forum. There someone certified by Tech Guy Forum will evaluate your situation.
