If you right click on an empty space on the task bar and choose 'task manager' and then click on 'processes' you will be able to see services and so on running.

Scroll down the list to find the one that is using all the 'cpu' time. Whats it called please?

Windows Firefox and Zonealarm were the processes you gave me by the way and the values you gave me were for memory usage and seem normal.
