Sorry for the long title. I was guided to this site by hijack this. Many thanks to Buckeye Sam for removing the viruses from my computer. The viruses are gone, but my original problem was 100% cpu usage, and that problem still exists. I'm trying to run Adobe AIR to take an online real estate class and it continues to max out usage and lag badly. I noticed that watching videos after a few minutes has the same result. I only have 512 of RAM on this older Dell inspiron 5100, but I've never had any problems before. I have reinstalled the drivers disk, gone to microsoft for updates and defragged the disk. I have plenty of disk space and apparently no viruses. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Jay

What process is using all the CPU?
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Start IE in safe mode and see if it still causes it. If it doesn't then open up IE in regular mode and disable addons/toolbars then re-enable until you find the issue.
