      That is usually a sign that either the server is being abused or there is something else wrong. Third party software is the usual cause.

      However first, stop the SMTP Server Service. If the processor use drops then someone is attacking the SMTP stack. If it continues then you need to stop the IIS related services (HTTP, FTP etc) until it stops. If it doesn't stop until you stop the main IIS service then there could be a more serious issue.

      AV or antispam software is the usual cause, so I would be looking to remove that first and then rebooting the machine.
