It's impossible to read anything from your screenshot, too small print.

I'd start with....

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).

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

It looks like some add-on, or toolbar is doing this.
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.
Restart computer.
