Svchost 100% CPU Only When Idle

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 Consuming 100% CPU?
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 Is Using 100% CPU - DcomLaunch / PlugAndPlay
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).

Svchost.exe PID / Process During Idle?
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.

SVCHOST Is Using Too Much CPU Time?
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.exe Memory/CPU Usage?
I've been noticing lately that sometimes my computer starts working on its own. Upon hearing the working sounds, I check the Task Manager and it tells me that svchost.exe -LocalSystemNetworkRestricted is taking up to 70MBs of memory at times. Most of the time it stays at ~50MBs. Also, sometimes this same process takes up to 50% of my CPU for a fw seconds.I did atasklist /svc on cmd.For LocalSystemNetworkRestricted, it gave me these:AudioEndpointBuilder, CscService, hidserv,

Svchost.exe Putting Out Very High CPU Usage In Services Power?
I have a system I am working on that no matter what I do svchost.exe keeps CPU usage on a Quad core hovering around 70-80% and temps in excess of 120F with a ThermalTake BlueOrd cooler installed. It is a custom system I built, with the following specs:

Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional , 64 bit
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) 9850 Quad-Core Processor, AMD64 Family 16 Model 2 Stepping 3
Processor Count: 4
RAM: 1791 Mb
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 4200, 256 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 305142 MB, Free - 265597 MB;
Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC., M4A785-M, Rev X.0x, 105424870002755
Antivirus: Microsoft Security Essentials, Updated and Enabled

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.

Ntoskrnl.exe Threads Hosted By System Idle Process Load 100%
I'm experiencing very annoying issue. CPU loaded with System Idle Process always. Because of that there is serious lag in iterfase. Problem appeared almost sumultaniusly on there different PCs. Using "Process Explorer" and going to System Idle Process - Threads I've found processes with names: ntoskrnl.exe!KiDespatch Interrupt+0x650 (on one PC) or ntoskrnl.exe!KiCpuId+0x6a0 (on two others)

I have three diffenent machines - one old acer laptop, one modern desktop and wmware virtual machine running on macbook. All have same OS - win 7 ultimate sp1. All of them are in the same network.

I've tried to localise issue by removing services and applications from startup - nothing, I've scanned machines with microsoft security essentials, Dr Web CureIT and Kaskpersky virus removal tool. Still nothing.

CPU get loaded as soon as system starts. Number of ntoskrnl.exe instances equals to number of CPU kernels. 1, 2 and 8 in my case on different PCs .

CPU Always At 100%
My CPU is always at 100%, and the task manager reveals nothing that is taking up any of my cpu, yet it remains at 100%, idling or not. My system was running great for months with virus software running until it randomly started doing this. No updates were installed, nothing has been installed in over a week.

CPU Spiking When Idle?
It seems that when I leave my laptop alone to go into sleep mode, the CPU keeps spiking at rather random intervals. Sometimes it spikes to 30% on one core just for a second.I have it set to dim display at 5 minutes, turn monitor off at 15 minutes, and to sleep at 20 minutes. It seems that just before the screen turns off, at about 14 minutes the BFE service and svchost.exe (defragsvc) take up about 50% of my CPU!!I have also seen the ssdp discovery service running and taking up some CPU power aswell?So far I have run a full scan of Microsoft security essentials, Malwarebytes anti malware, and Spybot search and destroy, none have found anything at all.Before the reformat I haven't experienced anything like these spikes. I don't know if that's because I haven't been paying attention to it this much, or if something has infected me, or if something is wrong with my windows 7 installation...

SCVhost Uses 100% Cpu
When i start my computer or connect to my internet , the scvhost process uses all my cpu for 10 minutes or so , then it drops to 50% , and eventually stops. And sometimes it starts using 50% cpu randomly . My windows automatic updates option is off , i googled my issue and apparently this should be the solution , but it's not.

Cpu Running At 100%?
When I logged on to my windows 7 computer it was slow and then I noticed that the clock and date were wrong. I opened the task manager and found that the cpu was running at 100%. After using bleepingcompter website to find that there was a malware I also went through the startup menu and removed unwanted items. I also uninstalled Itunes which was the last program installed on compter. Right now I have malware software called Malwarebytes. I am doing a full scan its been running for and hour and a half. I just checked and the cpu is still running at 100%. The only thing I did not remove was the lastest windows updates.

CPU Spikes To 100%?
Recently I've been encountering an issue where I'll be doing minimal tasks such as using safari with less than 4 tabs open. In the background I have photoshop open but not currently doing anything with. As well as aim and MSN and sometimes itunes. All of a sudden the whole thing slows to a crawl and I get the urge to throw it out the window. So i open the task manager and take a look and my CPU is at 100% (physical memory is around 30%). In the task manager i sort it so the highest CPU eating processes are at the top and they continue to jump around. for instance, safari might have 12 then 2 then 15 then 22 etc. I try ending a process that I'm not using and another process just spikes higher. if there is any drop, it's only down to about 92%ish. And it will behave like this until i close everything and start over. I've never really had this problem until recently and the computer isn't that old. I bought it in May 2010. It's a HP G62-144DX with a 2.13GHz Intel Core i3-330M Processor and 8GB of RAM. My windows experience rating is a 4.2 with my processor and memory being a 6.2. According to speedfan, my temps average in the 30s to 50s degrees celsius.

Windows 7 CPU Usage Always At 100%?
Recently installed the 64 bit Windows 7 beta, and my CPU usage is constantly at or near 100%, even with no external programs running. Just to give a quick run-down of my system, I have:-- AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Processor (2.2 GHz)-- 2GB DDR RAM-- 1GB Diamond Radeon 3650HD Video CardThe rest of my setup is a basic desktop machine -- plenty of storage space, etc. It runs XP Professional (32-bit) just fine. I installed the Vista x64 driver for my video card last night; it installed successfully, but did not seem to help much.

80-100% CPU While Watching Videos?
recently did a fresh install of windows 7 home premium on my hp g62-140us laptop (formatted hd, etc). everything seemed fine until i started to watch a video (doesn't matter what site, could be Internet, hulu, etc). from anywhere between 5-20 minutes of watching a video, my computer becomes extremely slow. the video freezes, probably going less then 1 fps, but the sound is still playing. sometimes, the sound lags too. task manager shows normal memory use but 100% cpu use... in resource monitor, the hog seems to be nt kernal & system. since this is a fresh install, im assuming its not malware or a virus. any ideas? i thought it was the video card driver at first so i uninstalled it and reinstalled it to no avail. also, the pc works fine in safe mode (i can watch videos).

CPU Usage At 100% All The Time?
I've attached the HJT txt file. Mod Edit: Removed HJT log, malware tool not used in this forum and stated issues seem to be non-malware-related ~ Hamluis.I've noticed that there are always multiple chrome.exe applications running. Also, the moment I start itunes, the apsdaemon program runs and the useage shoots to 100% until I close it. The laptop I have is a quadcore, 4gig ram fairly new comp. It just shouldn't be running this slow and being bogged down like this.

Computer Uses 100% CPU And Only 23% Of Memory
I have a Acer Aspire 5253 laptop which came with a 1 GHz AMD C-50 dual core processor with 2 GB of RAM and a 64 bit OS. It was using 100% CPU and 90%- 100% memory, so I removed the 2 GB of RAM and installed (2) 4GB RAM. Thing is it will still using 100% of the CPU and now only 23% of the memory. Is there something wrong here? 1-2 apps running (this number includes the anti-virus program) and one loading can stall or freeze the computer. Why so little memory usage? why doesn't the CPU allocate more memory to help itself with the load?

Programs mostly used:
Google Chrome
Windows Office
Kaspersky Pure (anti virus program, always running)
Pot Player (video player)
