Svchost 100% CPU Only When Idle

Aug 25, 2010

lve finally after a while caught why my system randomly shoots up 10C in temp while idle.. it relates to svchost, however this leaves allot of questions because as far as lm aware svchost is a process that runs many others under it..

Svchost.exe PID / Process During Idle?

Jan 8, 2012

When I don't touch my computer for a while, I get CPU 100% (or CPU 50% on this dual core). As soon as I touch the mouse, in one second the culprit escapes. I know it's something under svchost.exe and I know I could see which svchost with Process Explorer or Svchost Viewer. But since the whole process disappears as soon as I touch mouse, it's pretty difficult to pinpoint. Svchost Viewer doesn't list all the processes in one screen, scrolling is needed. So it's basically always hidden and I can't scroll to it as that kills the process.How do I find out what exact process inside svchost.exe is eating my CPU during idle? My goal is to prevent the offending process altogether from starting.By the way, which settings of Windows Defender can cause this CPU 100% on idle problem, I didn't yet try shutting down all the settings there.

No Svchost Running At All?

Sep 14, 2011

Yesterday, I installed Foxit Reader, then decided I didn't like it. When I attempted to re-install, I received the error message that "the windows installer service could not be accessed." It was listed as running in the services applet of administrator tools, but would not work.While then exploring the system, I found other things that wouldn't work--for example, audio, which is what put me on to the same problem last May--and others. I got many "class not registered" errors. SFC won't run. When booting to the CD and running SFC, I got the old message about a pending repair, although I can find no trace of one. Ran malware scanners, of course, and the system came clean. Clean boot was not useful.The most significant thing I have found, which is probably at the root of this, is that in task manager, there are no instances of svchost running, unlike the usual ten or fifteen that normally run.I had this problem in May, and ended up doing a complete re-install of Windows 7 Home Premium. I would like to avoid going through that again. It's difficult with visual impairment. There is one potential similarity to now and the situaton in May, other than the symptoms described above. In May, I had tried installing a new nvidia card, which Windows wouldn't recognize, so I took it out and when I booted back to Windows, the above symptoms appeared. Yesterday, I saw in event viewer a dcom error, which traces back to the nvidia updatus "user."

Svchost Using Too Much Memory?

Sep 13, 2011

For the past few days, my computer, which usually performs well, has started becoming very slow and freezing. When I open Task manager, I notice that the user SYSTEM always consumes a lot of memory (about 1000 MB), slowing my system down to a crawl. The guilty process is nearly always svchost.exe (service-SysMain; PID-1948;Description-Superfetch).

Svchost.exe Using 30% Of RAM Right After Boot?

Sep 30, 2011

I've noticed an issue with my laptop where an instance of svchost.exe takes up about 30% of my system's RAM, even after a fresh restart. I've tried stopping the process individually, but didn't notice a significant change. I ran a full scan with both Avast and Malwarebytes Anti-malware, but didn't find anything[CODE]

Svchost Using Too Much Bandwidth

Jul 15, 2011

svchost is using too much bandwidth. I am monitoring with NetLimiter 3 Pro. For example, from 5 to 6 AM it downloaded 268 MB and uploaded 6 MB. This is a problem since my internet provider sets a 400 MB/day download limit, so in less than 2 hours the limit is used up. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit with SP 1 installed.

This problem started a few months ago. I've had this computer since December. I'm having the same problem with my wife's computer (Windows 7, 32-bit).

I have checked for malware with Norton 360, Webroot, Windows Defender, and a few other freebee programs. Other than a few cookies with low threat levels and "Power Reg Scheduler" there was nothing there. I have removed these few items. I have also run Wisefixer, that fixed over 200 supposed registry errors. None of this has had an effect.

No Svchost Running At All?

Sep 16, 2011

Recently, I installed Foxit Reader, then decided I didn't like it. When I attempted to re-install, I received the error message that "the windows installer service could not be accessed." It was listed as running in the services applet of administrator tools, but would not work.While then exploring the system, I found other things that wouldn't work--for example, audio, which is what put me on to the same problem last May--and others.

Ran malware scanners, of course, and the system came clean. Defragged, did scandisk. Clean boot was not useful. Trying to do a repair in place results in the error message that setup can't find any information about the discs on the system.

The most significant thing I have found, which is probably at the root of this, is that in task manager, there are no instances of svchost running, unlike the usual ten or fifteen that normally run. In the services list, some services say they are running, but aren't. Windows audio is an example.I had this problem in May, and ended up doing a complete re-install of Windows 7 Home Premium.

SVCHOST Is Using Too Much CPU Time?

Dec 10, 2011

For the past week I have noticed that 'svchost(secsvcs)' has been using 40-50% of my available CPU time. Sometimes I goes away after a few minutes but there are occasions where it has run for an hour or more. The only way I know to get rid of it is to restart the computer.

SVCHost Consuming 100% CPU?

Aug 8, 2011

My PC has started running very slowly and I have narrowed this down to SVCHost running at 100% cpu in the task manager. Using Process Explorer I can see that this process is hosting Power, PlugnPlay and DCOMLaunch services.

I have run several anti-virus applications including malwarebytes and nothing was found.

Svchost.exe Slowing Down?

Jun 3, 2012

I just reinstalled Windows 7 and I already feeling its a bit slow...Is it because of the Svchost? Or is just my laptop is getting old? (its five years old now) Does the Harddisk have any effects on the responsiveness of the operating system?

Also, my other laptop, when it boots, it gives me 'Windows 7" and "Ramdisk Option" What is that?

Svchost.exe Consuming 200 MB RAM

Oct 20, 2009

I find that one instance of svchost.exe consistently consumes around 200MB of RAM. I find this to be a problem at times as I do a lot of memory intensive work including Photoshop, etc. I've attached a screenshot showing the services attached to this particular process.

Any idea which of these services might be a likely culprit? Are there any I can safely disable to free up some RAM? 200MB seems quite high for that.

SvcHost Is Using 100% CPU - DcomLaunch / PlugAndPlay

Mar 21, 2010

I just upgraded to Win7 from Vista. My CPU's are constantly 100% running svcHost.exe - DcomLaunch (PlugAndPlay?). Looked at various tips to no avail. Following tips did not help: [URL] DComLaunch and WmiPrvSE.exe, DComLaunch and WmiPrvSE.exe makes CPU running high - Vista Forums I don't have Xperia software (that was another tip somewhere). Also ran various scanners on spyware and malware: PC seems not infected. Stopping/Suspending the services blocks or makes Windows crash (confirmed by other forums).

Why Is Svchost Using All Broadband Bandwidth

Apr 17, 2012

After installing a new Virgin Superhub and finding I had internet access I thought that everything was working fine but later on this morning I found out that my Home Network ie wifes pc and the broadband connection to my main television set was offline. After googling a while and finding an article at the Virgin Media site I found out that the Default setting when installing the virgin superhub was as a router which meant that it had blocked off my Buffalo Airstation router and hence the no internet on secondary PC and TV. I had to enter the admin pages of the Virgin superhub and re-install it as a cable modem and when I eventually rebooted my system, and after a couple of tweaks I finally had my home network up and running again. I use Comodo Dragon as my default browser and a couple of hours ago I noticed a slow up of my main Win7 OS PC broadband connection which shouldn't really be as I have upgraded from a 10Mb connection to a 30Mb connection and my internet has seldom hung like this. It seems to be an entry of svchost.exe that is causing the problem. I did a scan with Process Explorer screen shots below. The svchost entry with PID 1892 is linked to "Local System Network Restricted" and to the service Superfetch. On the Comodo CIS Summary screen at the same time I saw that even though Comodo Dragon is running it is not shown and again svchost is using 90+% of my bandwidth. And when checking the Firewall Events screen I saw that some of Comodo Dragons functions had been blocked.

Slow During And After Startup - Svchost.exe?

Oct 27, 2010

For a quick run down of specs, I'm running Home premium 64-bit on an Advent Roma 4001, Intel Dual Core T4400, 4GB RAM and 500GB HD.

It's during the log-in screen that it tends to hang, on both the "Please wait..." and "Welcome" messages it takes between 30 seconds - 2 minutes, but the main problem occurs after logging in. The CPU usage, apart from System Idle Process (of course) is pretty much zero, and the RAM usage is down at about 30MB. Everything seems responsive, however, when I attempt to open a program or process I'm getting incredible lag, the type of unresponsiveness that would tempt you to do a hard reset.

The strange thing is it doesn't actually appear to be unresponsive. The programs all load given time and, for all running slowly for an amount of time, still run. What I have noticed is that svchost.exe seems to kick in at an undefined time and puts the RAM usage up to about 62,000K, with the CPU usage still being very low. When terminating the process, the theme will lose it's transparenecy and revert to a white theme, with processes continuing to run extremely slowly, until a few minutes pass, the windows 7 theme (with transparency) kicks in again and everything loads up immediately. After that, everything's fine - lightning fast.

I've tried chkdsk, messing around with msconfig and various other things to no avail. Am I missing something here? I'm stumped. I think given the problems I've been having aside from this (booting) I'm tempted to put it down to a faulty CPU or Harddrive (the 500GB size supports that probability, I think).

Trying To Drill Down Into Generic Svchost

Mar 14, 2011

I know how to

1. Find out how much memory is being used by each Svchost
2. Find out what processes are running under each Svchost
3. Identify the Process ID (PID) for each Svchost

If a Svchost has multiple processes running under it how do I find out how much memory each of those processes under a generic svchost is using?

1. Click on the Windows world ball
2. Type "command prompt"
3. Right click on "command prompt" and run as Adminstrator
4. At the command prompt first type in "tasklist /svc". This will give you the "Image Name" "PID" and "Process(s)" for each PID (Product Identification Number)
5.Follow the method described below for each Process that you want to isolate.

Creating an Isolated Process.What this method really does is modify one of the registry parameters for the service in question from a shared process to an isolated process. The command syntax is fairly straightforward and uses the sc config command set: sc config <service name> type= own. So for Windows Updates (wuauserv), the command would be: sc config wuauserv type= own. Note that there is a space between the '=' and 'own' - you must insert that space.

6. Reboot
7. Now repeat steps 1 - 4 below the double dotted line above
8. Verify that the "Process" that you wanted to isolate has its own PID
9. Type in Tasklist /FI "PID eq xxxx". Where "xxxx" is the number of the PID that you just isolated.Make sure to type in the quotes as indicated.

You will now be able to see the memory usage of the process that you just isolated. Note that the image name will still show as "Svchost.exe". To verify that you are looking at the correct PID, you can run "Process Explorer", go the PID in question, right click, left click on Properties, left click on Services and you will see the service that you just isolated. Does isolating a service out of a Svchost and creating its own Svchost change the total amount of memory that your system is using? I would think that it would because you are adding an additional Svchost for each process that you isolate.

What Is Considered A High SVCHost (MB) Number

Dec 26, 2012

I got this computer about a year ago and I noticed with my SVCHost files I got about 12 (which is normal) but the one starts at 100mb when I turn on the computer and gets up to about 450mb. It doesn't slow down my computer or anything. But I was simply wondering is 450mb to high? Or does it just vary depending on your setup? I also have a few various programs going including the MS Security Essentials and MS Firewall. Which I heard does increase it. I also know not to be worried unless SVCHost starts using alot of CPU, mines only at like 5%. I only have 8gigs of memory. I run games fine though like Hitman Absolution and so on.

High Memory Usage In One Svchost.exe Process

I have tried several suggestions already available for this issue. But No luck. I've tried by updating Windows (ref), scanning PC by TREND officescan. Also when I tried with only with Microsoft Services using Selective Startup option in msconfig as suggested here, issue remains same. (With that can I conclude that it is related with malware?)

Also need to note that the WLAN AutoConfig service (wlansvc) associated with that svchost.exe make sense as I've encountered some problem uninstalling wireless router software.I feel that that has not been properly uninstalled. how to check/or rectify it.

SvcHost.exe, Computer Will Run Deathly Slow If Not Suspended

Jun 18, 2012

I have come to find that after start up, after a few minutes. My computer will run EXTREMELY slow, I would wait a few minutes and open up task manager, and see that my CPU (AMD athalon 64 X2 Dual core processor 6000+ 3.1GHtz) and my Ram (16GB gameing ram clocked at 800) both maxed out at 100%, with no other programs running. Just after ideling from start up.I open the resource monitor, and click (from highest useage) and one of the SVChost.exe files are causeing all of my resources to be taken up."for those who will want to know, it's SVChost.exe (LocalServiceAndNoImpersonation)"So for the past few months, it's either I don't turn my computer off, or when I do, I need to be quick and catch it when it does start eating up the resources.The only reason why it's a pissoff to me to the point of posting about it, and actually posted about something, is because if I want to start MSN or Skype (only those 2 programs that I know about) I need to go through the whole SVChose.exe list, find that one, un-suspend it, wait for the program to finish starting up, and pray that it doesn't lock up my computer.

I have Windows 7 64bit Home Premium, SP1 running on my custom gaming computer built by myself.I have already ran multiple virus scans and even the windows CMD scan. (That took like a day)I do have teamviewer if someone eventually wants to connect and poke around to see what's going on..

EDIT: also, before this all started happening, I had about a 25second startup time (after getting passed the ASUS screen, and the "what OS do you want to load" screen. Now it's been jacked up to about 3-4mins.

Usage spikes when Outlook, IE8 and SKype are running after a random time period. I had this system on my bench for 2 weeks straight running benchmark tests and stress test software which all came back "PASS." I scanned for malware, virus, rootkits, etc. to no avail (all clean). Because of the extraordinarily high usage, USB drives are not working properly (take more than 2 hours to come up) and the system is sluggish. This should not be happening on a QuadCore system with a high-performance cooler. I even went so far as to format the HDD and perform a fresh install of everything. It worked perfectly for about 30-min then the BluRay drive stopped recognizing discs, CPU usage spiked up to 70%+ (two cores are at 94-97% usage all the time), and it won't pick up USB devices.
