100% CPU usage?

I seem to be having a problem recently with my computer, where 4 random programs will start using 25% of the CPU maxing it out.
These can be different programs every time, but usually two of them are Explorer.exe and Chrome.exe ... The rest just depends on what I have open at the time, it has been IDM.exe, Zune.exe, utorrent.exe, backup & storage.exe.
It will just randomly choose 4 open programs and make them all use 25% which then uses 100% of the CPU. Even when I've turned some of the other programs off, others will still use 25% (I.E. if uTorrent, IDM and Chrome we're each using 25% and I closed them, Explorer.exe would still use 25% even though nothing else is running until I end process on that and then start it running again)
Does anyone have any ideas what this could be?
