Windows 7: High CPU usage

High CPU usage

I am getting about 50-70% CPU usage while using firefox. Sometimes it goes down and sometimes it goes
insanely high. I checked processes in task manager but it doesn't seem that I have any processes that can
use that much CPU. I also checked for viruses with malwarebytes in safe mode deleted all of them but still I
get this much CPU usage.
I will attach a screenshot of processes.

That is insane.. I have 72 processes and only use 3 % of my cpu . you have a utorrent exe process running and some high svchost exe processes.. Your Firefox is not that high.. I have had higher than that.. not sure what your issue is.. but.. it is not firefox doing it.

I think it is not a hardware issue because in safe mode it is okay. 3-5%
Maybe some kind of driver or a ninja virus is causing this...

I did scan my computer with mbam I detected issues and deleted them then ran it again nothing found.
I ran it in safe mode.

Yeah it is fast when I run it in safe mode, but with this CPU usage on normal mode it is slow like I am running it on a toaster... -_-

Very high CPU usage, causing very high laptop CPU temps (90c idle)
This problem began yesterday. I noticed my CPU was at 90C constantly with very high CPU usage (>50%). I had no major programs running. I rebooted several times and the program persisted. 1. I went into safe mode and everything was normal. So this rules out hardware issues. 2. I reformatted and...
