Windows 7: Svchost using 50% CPU when idle

i'm on a fresh windows 7 ultimate 64bit, i blocked updates entirely. Going to install what updates i need by myself when i need them....


I'm thinking that Microsoft sabotaged the update system on purpose to push people towards windows 10, it's very possible.

Windows 10 is pure spyware, most intelligent vertebrates don't like being spied upon. I consider it an insult and in terms of performance - the worst windows in the history of WINDOWS.

I'll stick to win 7 and when it becomes obsolete beyond usability, i'll quit gaming and change to linux.

So you are joining the group of people mentioned in the article linked in Post #2 then!

Sticking with Windows 7? The forecast calls for pain | ZDNet

Quote from article.

Trawling through Microsoft's Windows 7 support forums, I found more than one commenter who was convinced that the Windows 7 slow update bug is part of a grand conspiracy to make the management process so painful that people will willingly say "Uncle!" and upgrade to Windows 10.


Also see the suggested workaround.

I've experienced the same high RAM usage by svchost.exe netsvcs a few times over the last year but it has always been fixable.

about the conspiracy, i'm not saying its a reality, i'm saying its a possibility and nobody can dismiss a possibility unless they bring solid evidence that disproves it.

We're in the cancer stage of capitalism where profit is above human life and this is not a conspiracy. They benefit more if everyone "upgrades" to windows 10, CIA gets what it wants, Microsoft gets to bully people into creating Microsoft/hotmail/skype accounts.

I was also pretty sure that it was a way for Microsoft to get users to upgrade to Windows 10 but actually any hard to fix problem seems to result in users giving up trying to fix their system and installing Windows 10.

I'm looking at this official page Windows lifecycle fact sheet - Windows Help to put things into perspective.

If i was to make a prediction i would say that in linux is the future for responsible PC owners because ( in the case of Microsoft Windows ) where there is profit there is planned obsolescence.


Ontopic - my windows 7 ulti 64 is running at optimal efficiency with updates disabled and i think i'll keep it that way.
