Windows 7: Conhost exe

It says 'Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.'

I'm in the Northeast of England and it's 2.30AM so reluctantly I need to stop now. Should I try System Restore tomorrow?

Only of you know when problem started. Then go back 5 days before. You have to be sure its not a virus, before using system restore or you could put the virus into system restore, too

The big question of the day is, where did you download Dragon Naturally Speaking from? If it was installed from a disk, was the disk an ISO copy or was it OEM, new? If it was downloaded from the internet, it would be pretty critical to know where it came from.

For some reason I downloaded dragon Naturally Speaking from their website, all 2gb of it, and it took about 8 hours. I did order a backup disc so I can uninstall.

I downloaded the latest version of Stinger which found nothing so decided to have a look on the Microsoft seven forum. They've heard about it but so far don't have a solution or a reason. Someone seemed pretty certain it was being caused by itunes which I had installed two weeks ago so I've uninstalled that and restarted the laptop. So far today there is no sign of conhost exe on the running processes. So I still have no idea whether it's a virus or not.

Multiple instances (dozens) of conhost.exe running. Windows 7 Pro (32-bit)
This is the thread on the Microsoft forum.

Yes, I noticed yesterday there were times when the memory usage went up to almost 80%. It's showing on task manager at the moment but just one of it so far. I honestly have no idea what to do now apart from waiting to see if uninstalling itunes works.

LOL
Virus by any other name is still a virus.

Update. It started multiplying faster which meant I was having to restart more often and windows seemed to be crashing more frequently so yesterday I reinstalled Windows 7. After 24 hours there is no sign of Conhost exe. on Task Manager. I don't see why there should be I have no idea what a console window is and why would I ever do a Command Prompt?
