You can always add a check mark to something in the future if you decide to. The final decision is yours.
NON MS is now taken care off and so were down to MS Services only. In your opinion would you conclude that a/ a few MS Services is/are responsible for this problem? If yes ill try and get rid of them one by one to see what happens.

CPU Usage with 70-80 Processes running...

Also, with 70-80 Processes running what should the CPU and memory usage be at according to you gentlemen?

to see what program uses your cpu, just sort it by that then you can end the process if it is a non microsoft program
take a snapshot of the taskmanager sorted list
also you can use process explorer from here:Overview - Process Hacker

Maybe you should just leave well enough alone. If it isn't broken, do not go on goose hunt chases trying to solve a problem that is not there.

Strange...

IMPORTANT: Something weird i just discovered with process hacker and task manager...

If you see the image below: It says Yahoo Messenger is taking up 12.98 CPU, which is not really possible, im now beginning to think this is a trojan:




I then EXITED Yahoo messenger and the CPU usage dropped to zero but within a second another program took it, Internet download manager, which normally only takes 1 or lesser CPU.





I then quit Internet Download manager and it then said Firefox is taking up 12.60 CPU whereas if you refer to the previous image, you'll see that Firefox is only taking up 0.39! Is this Trojan?




I am really eager to see what you gentlemen think about this?

No. Your computer is just doing work. There is no such thing as idle.

Something is wrong, im not just bringing this up because 15-25% of my CPU is always busy, its because this is how it started with my older PC and it soon went from 15-25-45-90 and eventually i couldnt use it anymore. There is no reason why my PC should range from 15-25% when idle and the discrepancy is the screenshots manifested above clearly suggest something is amiss, i need to find out what that is before it gets out of hand.

Thanks for your help, any further insight would be greatly appreciated.

I do believe its broken and it could do much more damage if i dont find an answer soon just like it did in the past. I'd appreciate any insight to this problem.

check your system with kasper rescue disk:
download the kasper rescue disk from here: Free Virus Scan
then write it on a cd or copy it to a flash, then boot your system with this cd, let it check your system when you are out of os.
if you are infected it will clean your system by 100%
let me know the progress
Hope it helps,
