Windows 7: CPU Usge 25% svchost.exe

CPU Usge 25% svchost.exe

As soon as i log in the CPU usage goes to 25% I've got quad core processor so it is taking up an entire core. Task manager is telling me svchost.exe is constantly running at 25%, with further inspection from Process Manager it is showing nvtray.exe and dwm.exe are using a lot of memory. Can someone please help me resolve this because whenever i try and install the drivers for my Netgear wireless USB it will then use 25% and get stuck detecting device.

That should not make any difference at this point. Download Driver Sweeper and uninstall your graphics drivers, reboot your system and try installing the drivers again.

Download CCleaner and do a registry scan to remove the invalid registry entries before re-attempting your NVIDIA drivers installation.

I don't have any Nvidia display driver service enabled, I have them all set on manual and don't use the nvtray at all. I have the nvidia update service disabled. If I want to go into the nvidia I just go through the control panel and access it from there, you don't need it to run in the notification area.
Also updating your drivers isn't always a good thing cause sometimes its the new driver that screws things up. I had to revert back to a old nvidia driver for my video since the newer one I updated with was either buggy or just plain crappy and still using that old driver in my comp.
Sometimes lessons learned in if its not broke then don't fix it.

check your system with a rescue disk antivirus
it checks your system for viruses outside of your os, you should boot your system with these software.
IT's a Freeware so take advantage of it
Download from here:

also you can check for AVG:
AVG | Rescue CD | PC Rescue and Repair Toolkit
AVG | Data Recovery | AVG Rescue CD

Norton from here:

Generally AVG (in my experience) has slowed my system down considerably making it freeze up and hang which is why I don't use it. Most companies use it such as schools, colleges, work places, libraries etc. Personally I'd recommend Bitdefender as I've had no problem with it at all, though for some it can be a big issue!

You are picking on the wrong svchost.exe. The one that's using the 25% CPU is further down on your Process Explorer snip (under dvm.exe). Hover over it or go to Properties to see which processes are hiding behind that one.
