Windows 7: svchost problem

svchost problem

I'v been recently having some issues with svchost taking alot of ram instantly when starting windows it takes over 100mb of ram and maybe sometimes it might go up to 140mb
is this normal?
I'v used svchost viewer to see what services it's running but all of them me seem important windows system tasks that I shouldnt remove.
Svchost also has caused my ram overall usage suddenly to spike up to 95% only when firefox has been running usually while a youtube video is running, especially if in multiple tabs.
restarting svchost usually fixes this but it takes a while to restart it loggin out and back usually is faster.
Also could this high ram usage be related to random freeze issues in certain games?
