Ubuntu hangs then crashes after starting an application.

I installed Ubuntu on my laptop 2 days ago. About 2 minutes after starting any application Ubuntu dramatically slows down and then crashes. I see 100% cpu usage as soon as it starts but the system locks up before i can see what it is using 100% CPU in process manager. I tried reinstalling and i get the same thing, the CD passes verification with no errors. The live CD will also crash the same way. If i don't open anything the system is fine.

I will try to get logs if needed.
