Svchost.exe slowing down?



I just reinstalled Windows 7 and I already feeling its a bit slow...Is it because of the Svchost? Or is just my laptop is getting old? (its five years old now) Does the Harddisk have any effects on the responsiveness of the operating system?

Thanks.

Also, my other laptop, when it boots, it gives me 'Windows 7" and "Ramdisk Option" What is that?

Multiple svchost is not unusual. Your CPU and ram are not high performance, but seem acceptable. Your CPU and memory usage are not overly high. You do have a fairly high number of running processes. Yes, the hard drive does have an effect on the responsiveness of the OS. A SSD would make a significant difference.

There are some steps you can take to improve performance.

Even defragging can help if it is not being done automatically as it should be in 7.

You can remove the Ramdisk as a dual boot option. See the 3rd post HERE

It's been doing this for a while now, too.. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I disabled windows update a long time ago; if I try to update it now, my system can't handle it, and it reverts its changes. Help would be appreciated. Where would I start?

Slowing down.
Just lately it's been getting pretty damn slow, had it installed for maybe a month, still using 7068. 70gb HDD free so its not a space issue, defrags run daily as with virus scans. Firefox gets laggy when scrolling down websites and boot times have gone to crap. Anyone know what I can do to fix it...
