Default Explorer CPU USAGE!

Hi all,

I'm having some peculiar and scary problems with my computer. It runs slow as hell at the minute (I've made no changes that I think could affect anything in this way). When I open the task manager, normally 'system idle process' is on CPU usage 99, but now explorer is using that. I can't think why it would be using that much unless I had a virus or something maybe?

Can anyone help?
