I really appreciate the responses guys.

I attached the requested files. It has not yet done it within the past two hours so I haven't got a chance to do the Resource Monitor screenshot.

Edit: I originally used MSE but that would always use 30-50% CPU even when I wasn't having the "spikes."

mse is LESS intrusive than any other av software worth its salt!

As I statedd, with all of that other stuff running, it is no wonder that you have problems.

Please upload the .txt files requested. The writeup i gave explains how to upload .txt files.

Excellent.

I'm going to give you a list of programs which I would uninstall.

After the uninstall, you will find your system running better.

You can then start adding them back in, one by one, to locate the programs which are slowing your system.

Since you have been running Torrent software, then:
1. I very strongly recommend removing all peer-2-peer programs and torrent is one of those,
2. run an offline anti-malware progam, namely, WDO. Link in my signature.

Here are links indicating the downside of p2p programs:
As long as you are using any form of P2P networking to download files, you can anticipate malware infestations.

References citing the risk of using P2P programs:

Malware: Help prevent the Infection
Perils of P2P File Sharing
How to Prevent the Online Invasion of Spyware and Adware

================================================
Now here's what I would uninstall while trying to locate the cause of slowness and high-cpu usage:

You really should update your Firefox. Current version is: 12.0

Now I know that you are screaming all kinds of epitaphs at me and, uninstalling is your choice. This is simply my recommendation.

I tried uninstalling what I don't need and I am still getting it. I tried the capture a picture of the resource monitor but the computer basically froze and had to be shutdown. I would also like to mention that this happens in safe mode too.

Okay, we need to check your temps. DownloadCPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting so we can identify what you have. And download this CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reportingso we can monitor temps. After you get them downloaded, shut down the pc and let it cool for about ten minutes. Then reboot, immediately run HWmonitor, then load CPUz. Let the computer sit for ten minutes, running idle. Then use it for ten minutes. After doing so, screenie the CPUz and HWmonitor screens.

I use Symantec, superantispyware, and ad-aware. I have Spybot installed but rarely use it.

Uninstall Superantispyware.

Uninstall Ad-Aware.

Uninstall Spybot.

If you are using the free or if you are using any version of Symantec other than the very latest, then:
Uninstall Symantec AND
install Microsoft Security Essentials ,MSE, link in my signature.

These steps are imperative.

After you problems are gone, and only then, you can a) make a full and complete system image backup and then b) reinstall your problem makers. The system image backup will enable you to put your system back like it was.

Remember, a clean system, without all of the marvelous wonder-curing programs, runs smoothly. The additional sofware that you install is what causes the problems. One should always have a backup plan if one desires to install third-party software and,yes, I use 3rd party software that has the Windows Logo. I avoid all of the wonder programs. I use Microsoft security software and only Microsoft security software. I use Win 7 Backup and Restore to make my system image backups.

If you want to get malware, be sure to use peer2peer software, especially torrent software.

I'll see what I can do, on the other hand here are the images requested.

Edit: the highest I've ever seen my CPU go before is about 165 but that is pretty rare.
