Ctrl-Alt-Delete should bring up your task manager where you can see what process is doing what.

I sometimes keep it open while doing stuff then if anything slows down you can see what it is instantly.

Give it a go and see if you can spot the cpu hungry process. You can then stop it if you wish. Finding out what it is will then allow you to take further action such as uninstalling/editing the hogging program

Hope I helped.

I would also check for spyware and a virus.
