Svchost.exe Is Taking Up 50% Of My CPU During Internet Usage?

Dec 21, 2008

Every time I'm on the internet svchost.exe takes up half my CPU. I can't browse, I have to constantly end svchost.exe so that I can sluggishly switch pages then in seconds it pops back again. Svchost.exe is somehow connected to my internet connection because i need it to use the internet yet its not letting me, its really frustrating, I've been beating my face on my desk because i cant figure out whats wrong. I've scanned my computer with AVG, malwarebytes, Spybot S&D, and Ad-aware.

Svchost.exe Taking 100% Of Cpu: System Very Slow?

Oct 28, 2007

Having a major problem with svchost.exe. Everytime I restart the computer an instance of svchost.exe uses a new PID and takes up 95-100% of cpu. I have to find the instance and then "end the process" to use the computer. I have scanned with PCtools antivirus, PCtools spyware, AVG antivirus, Pctools maestro, registry booster 2. All spyware and malware have been removed according to those programs. Registry has been cleaned, defragged and compressed. Still have the same problem.

SVCHOST.exe Takes Up All Of The CPU Usage?

Mar 19, 2007

The computer is nonresponsive for the most part at first. I click on the start button and nothing happens, but if i click on any desktop items they become highlighted because I clicked on them, but if I try to open them, they don't open immediately. After about 2-3 minutes of doing nothing, everything that I wanted it to do happens all at once.

When I open task manager, the thing that is taking up all of my CPU is this thing called SVCHOST.exe; there are 5 of them running - 3 for system, 2 for network service, and 1 for local service. While the computer has an episode, one of these for the system will use 99% of the CPU. That is when things are nonresponsive and slow.

CPU Usage 100%, PC Keeps Crashing, Svchost.exe?

Apr 14, 2007

Soon as i turn it on the antivirus starts up and my broadband connects then it freezes, a few times i've managed to open the task manager and i notice that on the CPU Usage History it it constantly at 100% and when i go onto the Processes tab instead of System Idle it is SVCHOST.EXE that is using all the CPU.

I thought it was a virus so i started my PC in safe mode and run the virus scanner, it found 3 Trojan Horse Downloaders, one even named itself CMD.exe which i thought would of cured the problem but ive turned it on this morning and it is still the same, it seems a little better and lasts longer before crashing but it still crashes eventually.

Svchost.exe High Memory Usage

Apr 16, 2008

I have recently become annoyed at the high memory usage of the svchost.exe process. I have 8 of these services running at the moment. I havent had reason to complain until recently when they seem to be using more memory than necessary. I might just be over reacting here but perhaps someone can verify it for me. I have included a hijackthis log at the system is running WindowsXP SP2, Asus K8VSE deluxe, Athlon 64 3200, 1.75 GB RAM, updated via drivers and windows updates (except one that just came in and I havent done yet).These just seem like too much memory for these. I have check at blackviper and didnt really see a lot of things I could turn off. I could be wrong though.

High Memory Usage For Svchost+wuauclt; USB Hubs Don't Work?

Sep 2, 2010

Both svchost.exe + wuauclt.exe's memory usage occassionally increases rapidly even if my laptop is idle. I have to terminate wuauclt.exe manually (through End Process in Task Manager) in order for the 'Commit Charge' to return to late 300/early 400M figures. If my 'Commit Charge' is 5XXM or above, if I plug any USB devices Windows XP won't recognise them. I have to terminate memory consuming programs (e.g. Firefox), restoring the Commit Charge to 4XXM, then Windows XP will recognised any USB devices I plug in. However, if I plug any USB devices right at the beginning when I turn on the laptop, I won't encounter any problems. Why is this?

Internet Explorer Taking All Resources In Professional

Aug 5, 2005

Most of the time my desktop pc runs fine, but about once a week when I click on a link or a page is loading in IE the system will virtually freeze.I don't do a lot of surfing (it's a work computer) so I don't venture into dangerous territory (sites with popups and redirects etc). I also keep my cache and cookies pretty clean, so it's not because that gets clogged up. The sites that cause the problem don't seem to have
anything in common and are work related or news related sites. I also DON'T have any 3rd party toolbars installed and DO have all the latest updates to XP Professional. When the lockup occurs, if I do Ctrl-Alt-Del and open the Task Manager (this can take a minute or 2 to load because of the problem) I can see the Internet Explorer is taking 98/99% of the cpu usage. I can try to cancel IE, but it won't cancel. I can't click on anything in the IE window because it's locked up. If I try to switch to a different open window, that could take from 2-4 minutes to refresh. I tried to lower
the priority of IE in the Task Manager, but this makes no difference.

Temporary Internet Files Taking Long Time To Be Cleaned Out?

Jul 13, 2005

What are the recommendations for "Temporary Internet Files".In large environments should we default the size limit? The default settings is normally huge as disk drives are so big.Users end up with 10s of thousands of files in this folder than can take 20 minutes to clean out.Many IE issues are also resolved by deleting temp internet files.We default the setting "Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed" on all systems but this does not seem to always delete everything.

If I use Windows Explorer to go deeper than the first level of any tree, CPU usage goes to 100% and stays there. I've disabled System Restore because it wouldn't let me go back in time anyway and this program is a known resource gobbler. Didn't help.

Svchost.exe Is Using 100% CPU Capacity?

May 3, 2007

When I start it, after a few seconds, a task is appearing in the Task Manager, called "svchost.exe", which is using 100% of my PCU. I know this task is part of Windows, but I'm wondering why it uses so much CPU... I performed a search on the web and found 2 tips: 1- Performing a registry scan (with RegCure or equivalent), then a spyware scan and a virus scan; 2- Updating my system on Windows Update. I did the first step with the free versions of RegCure and RegistryFix (registry scan), AdAware and AVG Free. But concerning the 2nd step, when I go on the Windows Update site, the automatic update tool performs an infinite search to find the suitable updates for my system

I doubt that it's blaster though. also could anyone suggest a good security combo I could use. Anti Virus Firewall and Anti Spyware I've become quite used to NOD32 and I don't like using the other memory hogs... I need suggestions for anti spyware and firewall that would go with NOD32.. or just any good solution that would prevent this from happening again and that wouldnt consume all my memory up.

Svchost Is Choking Up Too Much Of CPU

Mar 30, 2007

Whenever my laptop boot up to Windows XP, just when I thought everything was loaded properly, the svchost.exe would start to show 100% CPU usage. I checked through the previous posts and realised that most of the pp seemed to have the problem only when they are running Microsoft update or when they are using AMD CPUs. However, I am in neither of the 2 categories. Also, I think it was mentioned before that I could possibly check which program that is using the svchost.exe. But when my laptop is having 100% CPU usage, basically it does not respond to any instructions, may I know how can I check the program in that case? Is there something similar to a log file that I can look through?

Svchost.exe Question?

Jun 23, 2010

I have a question regarding the svchost.exe windows file that runs in the background. Besides having 2 of them running at once, which i have read is normal, one of the svchost.exe files constantly runs at around 140,000-170,000k of memory. Even when my computer is just turned on or has been sitting with nothing running. Is this normal? I dont have any excess programs running besides my creative sound panel, logitech g series keyboard profiler, saitek x-52 profile manager, and logitech gamepanel manager. It's beyond me why svchost.exe would take up more memory than a lot of the programs I run.
