it started about 2 weeks ago, i noticed that this process, Svchost.exe (netsvcs), is always downloading something, i tried alot of ideas that i read about online and non of them worked, i was using certain anti-virus when it happened.

yesterday i did a complete format for the C drive, and setup a fresh version of windows 7, got Kaspersky, updated it, did a complete scan twice, and this process it still downloading !

please any ideas are welcome.
thanks in advance

Svchost.exe is a com handler. It provides connectivity for other apps like your AVP, and many others. Its downloading at a minuscule rate (38kps.) and has little or no affect on the computer. svchost can consume huge amounts of cpu cycles and that is where is can be a problem.

Why are you concerned about the downloading? it could even be downloading AV sigs.
