Scan your computer in safe mode and see what happens.

Is your CPU's fan running? The CPU could be throttling to keep from damaging itself.

What temps is BIOS reporting? Look inside the case and see if the Fan is running...

Click on 'Task Manager' and then select the processes tab.

Have a look here to see if a program is using CPU 100%. If you see something that's using all your CPU resource then have a look into it.

If 'System Idle Process' is 99% when your not doing anything then that's ok.
