My computer has been occasionally experiencing very high CPU activity when no programs are being run by users. I have run Ad-aware, Spybot, and F-secure (aka Shaw Secure) and found tracking cookies. I decided to run Hijack This and post here in case I am overlooking something or perhaps someone will recognize a malicious program running.
