100 % CPU Usage

I am having a problem of 100% CPU Usage. I also had a very very slow speed of the computer. But after coming back from vacation (14 days) during which my compter was not put to use, the speed is back to normal. But the 100% CPU usage is still seen. Is there a virus?
Please note that whenever I start the computer the battery is about 7% remaining which means that i need to change the battery really fast. Is the 100% CPU due to the battery? I often see after 30 mins that the computer is getting really really hot.
I am also attaching my hijackthis logfile if there are any viruses or spyware.
Thanks in advance

Re: 100 % CPU Usage

I find that it happens reliably when I use IPVanish VPN.  It remains a problem, even after reboots, until I use Task Manager to stop all of the tasks, then it seems OK until I use the VPN again.  Don't think that it's been a problem with Avira VPN, that I also use.
