Windows 7: Svchost.exe Crazy High CPU Usage and Crazy High Memory Usage

Svchost.exe Crazy High CPU Usage and Crazy High Memory Usage

There is a serious issue with svchost.exe on my windows 7 computer. My HP Touchsmart 300-1025 has windows 7 64bit installed and svchost is slowing down the computer and using very high cpu and memory usage. It is not a virus or malware. I know the computer is not infected because one the computer has webroot and two if it was a virus or malware I would not be able to use the computer at all. So it has to be an issue with windows 7 64bit itself. Here is a screenshot of what I'm talking about and proof.

Hi Passion,

Your comp appears to have the wrong date 16 12 2015.

Please reset it, its more than likely your updates are failing and it keeps RE-trying.

That is an old screenshot, I took the screenshot on December 16 2015. svchost.exe still acts up today.

Disable Windows Update Service and reboot. If svchost RAM usage then remains normal for the next 24 hours, including ater an overnight shutdown - it means that you have a problem with Windows Updates.

Callender My HP touchsmart is acting funny and programs keep crashing ever since I disabled windows update. Amd Catlyst and Open hardware monitor crash a lot. But other than that the ram memory usage and cpu usage is back to normal after I disabled windows update. So what can I do to fix this issue so windows update won't do this again?

Just for info - have a read through this:

Completely remove windows updates and reinstall

I've found that the batch file does not always succeed in deleting everything that it is supposed to delete and that manual/ force deletion may be required.

That's a very complicated fix and it might take several attempts over several days and a lot can go wrong.

For now:

Enable Copy/ Paste in Command Prompt

Then open an Elevated Command Prompt

Type powershell and hit enter. Wait for the powershell prompt to appear (PS)

Copy and paste the follwing text then press enter. Wait until checks have finished then take a screenshot of the updates that have been found.

Code:
get-hotfix -id kb2506928,kb2592687,kb2660075,kb2726535,kb2876229,kb2902907,kb2923545,kb2952664,kb2970228,kb2976978,kb2990214,kb2994023,kb3021917,kb3022345,kb3035583,kb3044374,kb3050265,kb3065987,kb3068708,kb3075249,kb3075851,kb3075853,kb3080149,kb3083324,kb3083325,kb3083710,kb3102810,kb3083325,kb3112343,kb3135445
