CPU running at full clock rate

Greetings everyone...

My laptop CPU is running at full clock rate most of the time, thus my CPU temps are high all the time (Sometimes exceeding 91 degree Celsius). Weird thing is that the usage is mostly between 7-21 % .

Could anyone help me figure out what's wrong with my laptop ?

I have attached some screenshots of the task manager

    Hmm, this could potentially be a virus, have a scan to see if it picks up anything. Also, it maybe time to reapply some thermal compound to the CPU but you could take it to the local store unless you want to do it.
