Exclamation dbus-daemon hogging CPU Linux Mint 12

Running Linux Mint 12 on my Sony Vaio. Its been running well for almost a month now without any trouble and my computer is the fastest its ever been. However today I came back from some errands and the computer was locked. When I shook the mouse it took forever for me to get the password prompt (the disk light was on constant). When I finally got to my desktop the CPU and memory usage were 100% and I had to control-alt-backspace as it was so bogged down I couldn't do anything. I decided to give it a restart and see if the problem would go away, however when I logged back in after a restart, dbus-daemon is using consistantly 70+% of the CPU.

Any reason why this would suddenly start?

Thanks in advance!

Hmm, after logging out and logging back in the background CPU usage has returned to somewhat normal levels, however whenever I open the system monitor to get a more accurate reading than the panel applet I'm using, dbus-daemon starts hogging the CPU.
