wtf? cpu problem...

my computer has just gotten REALLY slow. the cpu usage is fluctuating alot, as low as a couple percent and it will spike to 100% and hang there, obviously this is when the problem occurs. i have ran a defrag, also tried to run a disk cleanup but the cleanup freezes everytime i try to run it because the cpu usage peaks...what could cause this?

A virus or adware will do that.

I use Spybot Search and destroy and AVG Free edition and haven't had any problems whatsoever.
