CPU Usage Maxed Out

adobe_plugin.exe is eating all 4 CPU cores, I found a mozilla site using IE, that said to do about:config then set dom.ipc.plugins.enabled; to false. Done.

Rebooted checked my CPU usage nothing running except for stuff that cannot be turned off. CPU back at 100%, ended the process, my CPU went to almost nothing.
