Windows 7: svchost.exe(netsvcs) problem cpu load high

svchost.exe(netsvcs) problem cpu load high

Hello,

I have a problem. In the task manager -> system resources, I see that a process called svchost.exe(netsvcs) (if I'm correct) is using about 50% of cpu. The cpu is AMD dual core 2.81GHz.
This doesn't always happen. Right now, it uses 48 %. Should I be concerned? Is it a legitimate process or malware. Malwarebytes did not find anything at a quick scan.

Please help me with this metter.

EDIT: now, the all cpu load is 6%. Bitdefender online scanner found no infection...

Hi kenobi,

'Svchost.exe' is a generic process that calls 'Services' in Windows and one instance of that process may call 5 or more 'Services'. If critical 'Services' are being used, close to 50% of CPU usage may not be abnormal.

You may want to check the 'Services' that are related to this process at any given instance. To check the 'Services', running this 'Process', you may right click 'svchost.exe' and click 'Services'; related 'Services' will get highlighted. You may want to 'disable' the 'Services' that are not critical.

Hope this helps.

Hi kenobi,

Glad that you found the information useful. 'Svchost.exe' is a legitimate process; shouldn't be a concern at this time. Thank you for the response.
