svchost.exe uses all of my memory at startup

Dear Everybody,

I wonder if somebody could help me!
I'm from Hungary.
I use a Win 7 Pro 64bit HUN.
A week ago at the startup the svchost.exe loads all of my memory (4GB).
During eating memory, the system freeze.
After loaded all of memory, discharge all, and the system works normal...

Please see the attached pictures and the startup list.

On picture #2, you can see services of this svchost process (PID 1100).

I beg your help!

Thanks in advance!

Viktor

try to disable windows automatic update from control panel and also from services.msc, this worked for me on a friend's pc (his problem was 100% CPU usage)

or, sometimes, the process hides an infection in the computer, in this case do a scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware or SUPERAntiSpyware and see if u find any problems

/didn't see your post theog, i was writing mine, lol on malwarebytes, truly a great utility

Hi,

Malwarebytes found nothing.
But I found the offender: netprofm.dll (Network List Manager)
I uncheked in msconfig, the startup will be perfect, but I have no network.
If I start it, it will eat my all RAM and I have network again.
Should I download netprofm.dll from an filerepair webpage and replace the old corrupted to new one?

Thanks, bye!

What in the world are you seeing? Your memory usage is not even above 30%.

Hi,

During startup the memory usage 100% by svchost.exe (netprofm.dll).
The memory usage grow up tho 100% in 10min, and as soon as full it fall back.
This total process take 10-12min every startup.
After the end of this long process my computer works perfect.

svchost.exe memory question
Is it usual for that process to take up 500-600K or memory? I don't recall seeing it take up that much space before. Just curiosity because if i run some program that requires lots of memory, it starts to lagg. Never had that happen before either.
