My computer seems to be running fine since yesterday evening. I am running Iexplorer without add ons. I am also not getting double windows coming up when clicking on a link. I ran spybot seek and destroy and found several faults including that my anti virus was switched off when it was not. Spybot corrested that.

The computer was running slower than normal off the internet especially when printing photos. It took a long time for the computer to tell the printer to print. Regarding CPU usage it seems to be normal now jumping from say30 to 90 back and forth. Yes, one explorer.exe and 4 Iexplorer running.Total memory usage about 44,000k. I did say that Apple ? was hogging 90 of CPU. Since I disabled it computer is fine. I think I will delete the programme QuickTime as I do not really need it and I think this is the culprit. I would like to thank all of you for suggesting things [and giving up your time to help],even if I did mis-read and run IE without addons!
