100% CPU means the Processor is working at full pelt - not that your Hard Drive is full.

Have a look in Processes on Task Manager - what is using up all the CPU?

Probably best if you say that again so we can understand it.

Internet Explorer seems to be using the most cpu when compared to the rest of the Processes AND I should point out that Internet Explorer seems to behaving awarkdly by which i mean it is not functiony normally.

I'd imagine its cause Internet Explorer is trying to do too much. Does it go down when you close Internet Explorer?

Sounds like spyware is actively attached to the explorer and transmitting data to a 3rd party.
Scan your system completely

Yeah, does sound like that. With only one Windows open it shouldn't really be taking up 1%.
