cpu useage allways at 100% issue

soooo i did a clean install of windows 7 on a rebuild of my gaming computer, its been running fine for the last couple of days, but now my cpu useage is through the roof, anytime my firefox or antivirus are running my cpu useage is at 100% otherwise it sits at 50, does anybody know anything about this??
i just downloaded the Windows 7 drivers for my motherboard and didnt notice the issue till after i had done that..
it would be much appreciated

You need to go to task manager and post a screen shot of services, processes and preformance so we can see what all is running. Cause I'm online with my anti virus( 4 processes), my tv & task manager running along with everything else with between 2- 4% cpu usage. something is really wrong.

If it does start going back up to 100% again, go in to services and disabled the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service, as this caused a few problems with my PC and excessive CPU usage. All it does really is allow you to network your Xbox 360 to your PC.
