Visited a few east european newsites and downloaded a few .txt files. Immediate high cpu utilization with memory spikes up to 99% and averaging around 30-40% use at idle. I ran the following diagnostic programs after running widow washer, spysweeper (just tracking cookies found), and created a restore point:

1) Adaware twice. once in safe mode. Only found tracking cookies which I deleted.

2) Spybot twice. once in safe mode. Again, a few tracking cookies deleted.

3) AVG Anti-Spyware in safe mode. Ditto.

4) Superantispyware. Ditto.

5) Panda Active Scan. Found "Potentially unwanted tool:application/eblaster. ocxdrv32.dll" (deleted w/ no effect)

6) Symantec Anti-virus. Nothing found. (uninstalled)

7) Installed and ran AVG Free virus scan in safe mode. Ditto.

(uninstalled a few software programs and removed a few 3rd party start-ups w/no effect.)

8) ran hijack this, log below.

Just my luck, discovered something brand new maybe? Thanks for all the help.
