Windows 7: svchost.exe (NetworkService) jumps to 100% CPU

Windows 7 Build 7600 x64
svchost.exe (NetworkService) jumps to 100% CPU

Hi All,

my windows 7 x64 is a bit messed up lately, can't find the solution. Problem:

svchost.exe (NetworkService) jumps to 100% when using Google Chrome or other internet related software. I need to stop the service in Source control, to keep my laptop from crashing. (as the CPU gets to hot and shuts down the Laptop without warning.)

Aswell with 3D software or heavy programs same issue

HP 8710W, fully updated softpacks

Some AutoDesk suites
Tuneup utilities 2011
