Download, install and run Tune Up 2006 Trial
Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete.
Run Tune Up disc clean up
Run Tune Up registry clean up
Click optimize and improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

I ran all of the scans you listed. It cleaned a bunch of crap from my computer which is good, but the CPU issue still exists. I really don't know what the problem is, and the 2 other GeeksToGo staffers I have talked to seem to be stumped.

Can you verify the motherboard temperature sensors for us?

It really doesn't make any sense - one day I attempted to remove the Winfixer virus. Then the next morning, when I turn on my computer, everything has gone to [bleep].

Dont worry, N3cr0n0mIV, we'll get to the bottom of this.

These were measured with my CPU pegged at 100%

I'm going to take a flyer here:
O20 - AppInit_DLLs: C:\WINDOWS\system32\wmfhotfix.dll
There was a wmf metafile fix floating around the Internet recently, that creates this setting above.
Somewhere around Jan 10, MS released it's own patch....have you visited MS Windows update since then, or do you have automated updates installed?
If so, you should have removed the hotfix that was floating around the internet (called HExblog's wmf patch, or something)
Not removing the patch, and installing the MS fix on top of it, could have ugly consequences.
Check add remove in control panel and see if both
Windows WMF Metafile Vulnerability HotFix"
are installed (check the SHOW UPDATES BOX at the top in SP2)
If so, uninstall them both, then revisit MS Update and reinstall

(will worry about update in a moment)
