Windows 7: Win7 64bit unusable - help

It almost appears as if Windows Update is causing it. If you disable the Windows Update service (temporarily), does the CPU usage subside, or move to another process?

TrustedInstaller and svchost are using a lot of cpu are you installing updates ??

Also i recommend you to do a clean windows 7 installation and update your drivers with Windows Update and see if that works

But first of all disable windows update service

Ok so I took out two sticks of ram and problem solved. Now I'm back down to 4g (the whole reason for 64bit was for more ram) >.< any ideas now?

I changed that to 64bit mode before I even removed the ram cause I figured that was the problem. Currently using that setting now, just 100% cpu with 8g ram still even with that setting (my board is capable of 8g) idk

Run a full scan with Malwarebytes. Install a free lightweight AV like Avast or Microsoft Security Essentials and run a full scan.

Test your RAM and slots thoroughly following these steps: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Recheck that your RAM is spec'd correctly without doubt.

Once RAM is confirmed or bad stick/slot removed, I would reinstall following these steps to get a perfect reinstall, particularly if they vary greatly from the way you first installed: Reinstalling Windows 7

I had a feeling it was svchost.exe.

This is caused by a virus, same thing happened to me, however it is easy to remove if you have a restore disk or a Restore Point.

Use a System Restore point or a clean install, I used a System Restore, but others may be able to troubleshoot even more with a more advanced method.

To enter System Restore, repeatedly press F8 during Boot, and go down to System Restore, select a date that was before the problem happened.

Hope this helps, and good luck.

Joe.
