w3wp.exe using lots of CPU

    I have a freshly installed Windows VZ plesk 8.1.1 server running about 50 websites with a couple of sites running a PHP forum.

    The w3wp.exe process for user=IWAM_plesk(default) is taking up all of the CPU.

    If i end the task, it comes back using less CPU, but eventually over a period of minutes, its back using 60-80+% CPU again.

    The VPS server basically starts performing slow and wont serve pages while in this state.
