invisible process running

My computer is running slow. I am running Windows XP with 1 gig of ram and a AMD 1400 processor.
When I check task manager there are no running processes. System idle is 99%. When I look at the performance graph 70% of my CPU is being used. If I disable the D link wireless connection the CPU usage drops to near to zero. What is causing this drain on resources?
My wireless card is D-Link AirPlus DWL-G520
Not sure if this is the culprit.
I also downloaded Microsoft Malicious software removal tool recently. Can this be it?

Hi Fruit bat. Thanks for the message. Yes it is WEP coded. The network activity is zero it is just CPU usage.
