I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.
If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Go Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools, and click on Internet Explorer (no add-ons). Same high CPU usage?

P.S) Is there anyway of making this a permanent thing or do I have to go through the same routine everytime

Toolbars (Google, Yahoo) are primary suspects.
In IE, got Tools>Internet Options>advanced tab, and click Reset button. That will return IE to its original settings.
