My CPU has been 100% for over a month. I first thought it was a virus so a scanned w/ every program out there and nothing would detect anything, HJT log was reviewed and nothing found so I went down the Registry Path and tried to repair with Registry Repair Tools to no avail. So I backed up all my files and did a complete OS re-install in CPU is still at 100%. And when this problem first started by USB ports stopped working.

If after all of this your CPU is still at 100% I would suspect that you have an overheating problem or the CPU might have a problem. Lets try the overheating first download and run this program and please post teh results

SpeedFan is a freeware program that monitors voltages, fan speeds and temperatures

Ozrom1e,
Not sure how to save and import the results so I'll just type.
Ambient 38C
Remote 1: 40c
Remote 2 : 118C
HD0: 39c
Core: 42c

Fan1:830RPM
Fan2: 1862RPM

Not sure what Remote2 is but there's a flame by it and 118C seem pretty hot for inside of a computer. You may be on to something...

Could Remote 2 be the Chipset?
If it was I'm surprised it hasn't completely conked out at 118, I had a few overheating troubles in the summer, the chipset temperature (monitored by a program called Smartguardian, which came with my motherboard, an NForce 4 from DFI) and was at points getting up to 50C, in which the PC would simply reboot. I've sinced solved the problem using the handy fan controls.
118 seems so hot, you could double check using a different program. As well as SG, I've used PC Wizard 2007, which gives slightly different readings.
You can download Smartguardian from the ITE website (http://www.ite.com.tw/software_download/software_download2.asp), but you need to have the ITE controller chipset on your particular motherboard for it to work. As mentioned, NForce 4 boards have it.
And PC Wizard 2007 can be found here: http://www.cpuid.com/pcwizard.php

Regards,
Marty

I suspect "remote 2" is simply an unused channel. At 118C, the chipset would have surely failed.

So if we disregard the temp reading on Remote 2 does that mean I'm back to square 1?

If this helps-
Running stats from PC Wizard gives a little more detail.
It shows that the Power/Aux Temperature to be 118 C and the Processor Fan to be the one running at 1834 RPM

otzi - I've ran multiple Virus Scans - Trend Micro, McAfee and others.
