Look under processes and end them one by one whilst monitoring your CPU usage.

It doesn't matter, but I believe that one of your running processes is causing the abnormal CPU usage.

Yes. It could be explorer. Don't be suprised when you task bar etc dissapears when you end explorer.exe. It should restart, and if you see the cpu usage return to normal whilst explorer is down, you have found your problem.
