Will you please inform us why it is that you are running XP SP2 as your operating system, and IE 6.0 as your browser.
Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.4
Scan saved at 12:14:41 PM, on 12/31/2012
Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)
MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)
Boot mode: Normal
With either/both, the system is missing multiple patches and updates which could pose security hazards and possibly allow malware to be operating/connecting via instance(s) of svchost.exe, consuming band-width and churning your CPU cycles with processes that you may not be able to detect as present.
The above question can be particularly risky, particularly because vlc.exe is running from file %1. And because, though apparently not running actively at the time you posted the lists above, you have an instance of uTorrent installed.
Neither uTorrent nor vlc.exe are deemed to be malware and both can have legitimate uses.
However, either can create problems depending upon the media they are handling at the time.
Consider (at least temporarily) Uninstalling both vlc and uTorrent applications.

This sounds like typical PIO mode hard drive problems. The CPU spikes on everything you do temporarily and causes significant slow downs in performance in general. Or, you have a celeron CPU which will do that no matter what you do. YOu have to realize that when you are doing something on your computer it should spike to 100%. Do you wnat everything running slower just so you can say your CPU isn't being fully utilized?
Its already been mentioned that the system should have SP3, and should have IE8 running. Whatever you reasons, throw them out the window. Its a miracle you haven't been completely infected yet.
A PCPitStop scan will probably reveal whatever performance issue you are having.
