No one has tried to answer yet because you didn't provide enough information.

Use tools like
1) top
2) ps -ef --sort=-pcpu
3) gnome-system-monitor
to figure out what processes are pegging your cpu. Then google about those processes if you don't recognize them. If that doesn't get you anywhere, edit your original post with more info.
