Windows 7: Constant high CPU

13 Aug 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Constant high CPU

Few days ago my PC suddenly started having really high CPU (sticking at 100% while playing a game I used to play fine, now causing FPS lag) and around 50% while on desktop. I tried every solution I found on the internet but nothing worked, so I decided to re-install Windows 7, and I did.
Everything is clean now and my CPU is constantly staying at 20% while on desktop with nothing running. So it improved but is still really bad. I checked my task manager and svchost.exe(s), 2 of them, are taking the most memory, other one of them 230,000 kb and the second one 120,000. (I have 8gb RAM)

Tried scanning with my Panda internet security antivirus and Advanced SystemCare 6, but they found no malware. I also used a program called rkill to kill suspicious processes before scanning with my programs.

I have no idea what to do, any help would be appreciated!

Try this as a start
Task Manager - Show Services Running under svchost.exe

It tells how to get from the svchost listiing in Task Manager to the Service it actually loads.
