Windows 7: svchost.exe (netsvcs) draining all my memory

That's funny - superfetch has been disabled on my machine for a couple of years (I use a RAMdisk instead) but I still had the problem.

Maybe other users could test. Note there may be performance issues if superfetch is disabled.

I would be interested to know if RAMdisk is running the same conflicts as superfetch as well.. I primarily use Linux, these Windows issues I found in customers computers..

I have had superfetch turned off for months and I still have the problem with SVChost draining my memory.

Yah, oddly enough it has been a functional method for me thus far. Right now I am prepping a virtual machine to try and see if I can get myself into the issue and try to resolve it. Windows systems that do not run updates are seeming to me unaffected as far as I have seen, so it is a bug related to some of the new updates. I have also gotten in ties with a Network admin who claims there are patches for the issue in the server systems.

If I find anything else I will be sure to post it. I could use any information anyone is willing to provide on current software such as virus protection, there is a good chance that it is related to a common software trend of people. The computers I have fixed so far are minimal systems used mainly just for email and web browsing, running Nortin anti-virus.

Could you post information regarding your CPU / chipset? And do you run the same software on all machines?

Ha! That was one of the services on my list. There is more information here as well.. Windows Update / SvcHost.exe 100% Cpu in task manager - Microsoft Community

It also seems that this component has not been upgraded much in the past, so it is my theory that it is another updated component that is now causing conflict with services such as these...

Problem with a svchost.exe (netsvcs)
For some strange reason this process is using about 12% of my cpu. It never stops unless I suspend it. But then I cannot browse. So I have to unsuspend it to browse. Any ideas what could be happening? This is not normal as far as I know. Avira and Malwarebytes show no problems.

svchost.exe -k netsvcs Slowing Down Computer
It's been doing this for a while now, too.. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I disabled windows update a long time ago; if I try to update it now, my system can't handle it, and it reverts its changes. Help would be appreciated. Where would I start?
