Am pretty sure it's a virus, i heard of it (Can't remeber the name, sorry). The CPU some how takes heavy load, so a full virus scan through the WINDOWS folder, hope it works and good luck

Start your pc in safe mode and do all your scans that way.

Press ctrl-alt-delete and click the processes tab and see what you have running that is using all your cpu resources. That might help narrow it down.
