Close Firefox. Go Start>All Programs>Mozilla Firefox, click on Mozilla Firefox (safe mode). Same high CPU usage.
Post fresh PE log while playing video.

OK, so we have firefox.exe using almost 30% of CPU cycles.
Since Firefox add-ons has been disabled, we have to look somewhere else.
You disabled all non-Microsoft entries in "msconfig", but I still can see two AVG processes running, which makes me believe, AVG my be your issue here.

Try this...
Re-enable all "msconfig" entries, you disabled before.
Uninstall AVG, using AVG Remover: http://www.avg.com/u.../download-tools and see how it goes.

I had just installed AVG yesterday, but this problem has been going on for a while. Previously, I had Norton installed. Should I still go ahead and uninstall AVG?

Simply unzip Autoruns.zip file, and double click on autoruns.exe file to run the program.

Youtube videos are playing fine, but Hulu videos are still lagging. CPU usage is still at around 100% though.

OK, let's finish Autoruns part.
Re-run Autoruns, click on "Logon" tab. We'll disable some unneeded startups (no actual programs will be removed).
UN-check following entries:

+ "Alcmtr"
+ "BrStsWnd"
+ "GrooveMonitor"
+ "igfxpers"
+ "igfxtray"
+ "iTunesHelper"
+ "MSConfig"
+ "SunJavaUpdateSched"
+ "Windows Search.lnk"
+ "Google Update"
+ "WMPNSCFG"

Restart computer.

I assume, you uninstalled AVG?
If so, you need some AV protection.
Download and install one of these:
- Avira free antivirus: http://www.free-av.c..._antivirus.html
- Avast! free antivirus: http://www.avast.com...avast-home.html

BTW, I checked my Task Manager, when playing uTube video and CPU usage easily goes to 50% and beyond, so I assume, it's normal.

OK, I did all that. So did we decide that AVG was the culprit? Hulu videos still lag though..

Also, does this mean that I am only limited to smaller programs for AV protection?

Well, AVG is a known resource hog, so you'll do better with Avira, or Avast.

What type of internet connection do you have?

I think it's 6M cable internet. I don't think the internet is the issue for watching videos because other computers on my network can play them fine.

Get HWMonitor: http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php and see, if it'll list your video card temperatures.

I downloaded it, but it only shows something called ACPI, the harddrive, and the battery.
