Windows 7: svchost.exe using lots of memory

svchost.exe using lots of memory

Hello, I noticed my memory usage was at 42%, when it is usually 25-30%. I opened task manager and found 12 different processes of svchost.exe running. One of then was using 149,156 k of memory, from which I understand is a whole lot.

Is this normal? And if it isn't how do I fix it?

Thanks in advance.

It's normal.

You can tweak your services by following the Black Viper guide:

Windows 7 Service Configurations by Black Viper

I'd get rid of the 2 instances of jusched starting with Windows. Also set Punkbuster services to manual.

It is normal and there is nothing to fix. When you are actually having memory problems and what not then come talk to us.

svchost.exe can be a great number of diffferent system services. If you could identify the exact service this svchost.exe is running, it would make it easier to interpret the number. Use Process Explorer http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s.../bb896653.aspx - there you can hover over the process and get some more info and then right click on it > Properties, and you get a lot more info.

I actually found 2 viruses (Win32 trojan or something) deleted it, and the memory usage was cut in half.

Let the pc stay on for a while. It will be back up where it should be.

As far as having infection - you should consider a clean install with a format. Once having something like that, you can never tell what it has done. Nobody can.

I know, so far it has been fine after deleting. But if I find any problems that will be my first thing to do.
