Svchost.exe High memory usage at startup

Hello

So I had this problem for a while now and it's really annoying. Just after the "Welcome" message the PC keep loading for few mins and I can hardly open any software due to this high memory/CPU usage.
I already disabled some startup programmes/services but that didn't help

Is there a method to find out what my PC is doing? sometimes I see "trustedinstaller.exe" process, not sure what's getting installed/updated.
Also I think that this problem have something to do with VMware but I'm not sure.

Hello Master12,

What is svchost.exe? - Windows Help

Svchost.exe is a process on your computer that hosts, or contains, other individual services that Windows uses to perform various functions. For example, Windows Defender uses a service that is hosted by a svchost.exe process.

There can be multiple instances of svchost.exe running on your computer, with each instance containing different services. One instance of svchost.exe might host a single service for a program, and another instance might host several services related to Windows. You can use Task Manager to view which services are running under each instance of svchost.exe.

It's normal for a computer to take a few minutes after booting-up for it to load of all applications.

Thank you,
VinnyBuxton

Can you elaborate on "High memory usage"? This is so subjective that it really means nothing.

Your specs need to be more complete. Make sure you list your security programs in your specs.

The svchost.exe can be anything. I have currently a dozen of those running. You have to find out which processes are the ones that you suspect are giving the problem. Easiest is with Process Explorer.

Hello,

Sorry for late reply, here is a screenshot:


Physical memory usage was between 78-97%

My PC used to boot in 3-4 mins max but now it takes more than 10 mins...

You don't show which processes are running under that svchost.exe. Right click on the exe and go to Properties > Services tab - see picture example.

Hmm, that's not obvious because there are so many services. The one that looks odd is the 'Lanman server'. Do you know what that is.
