So, task manager did specify which process was running your CPU at 95%?
Under applications it showed no open programs on which you might "end task"
one at a time to see if any list programs were the offending application.
Have you checked Event Viewer under Administrative Tools as there might be
some error, especially one that repeats regularly.
Have you run a virus scan on your system?
If you remove that gadget, the CPU gadget, do you still have the same issue?
