svchost.exe high memory

Whenever I start my computer,I'm getting high memory usage on svchost.exe

I'm not so sure which info I need to provide,to continue troubleshooting so here is some:
Nod32 antivirus,Q9650 @ 3.00GHz,8 Gig of ram,around 10Gig of free space at the system drive,using windows 7 x64 with SP1 installed and fully updated.
The memory at svchost.exe is like leaking and just gathering more and more,and it gets to 150,000+/-.
While I was writing this,it went from 97,***k to 104,388k.

80 to 100k is not that a-typical for the primary svchost.

I wouldn't really call this a problem. The reason you got 8 gigs of ram was so you wouldn't have to wait as long on operations correct?
Win 7 makes more use of higher ram amounts than vista and xp did.
Stopping this would only serve to slow the system down by making it pagefile the same services.

You may be able to reduce it slightly by killing some of the non-microsoft services using msconfig.

...as I said, this isn't really a problem though.

Ok.
But I've been monitoring that couple days now,and saw that the memory is only goes higher and higher until I reboot the machine.

You seriously think 150k is a lot?! This has to be a joke.

Complain about memory usage when you have 2 GB like I do, then I'll take you seriously.

The more you use the machine and the more different things you do, the more services will be activated to support them.
