Default XP is sucking up my processor

ello, ive been having some problems with my os and internet recently, ive fixed most but the one thing i cant fix is the fact that certain xp programs are sucking up my processor power. for example the explorer file is constantly using up 50 - 80 % of my 2ghz processor

this is seriously lagging my comp as u can imagine.

help plz?
