How to automatically kill and restart a specific Windows application if it begins taking 100% CPU?

I have one program running in the background (so I can use a remote controller with my PC) but every now and then the program crashes and begins using 100% CPU (I have quad-core, so it's 25% CPU usage). When that happens, the program needs to be killed and restarted.

If the program genuinely enters the "not responding" state in Windows terms, ie. stops responding to Windows messages, then you could try PTFB Pro. It has an option to detect when a program stops responding, kill it, and restart it automatically.
