Windows 7: SvcHost.exe issues. Computer will run deathly slow if not suspended.

18 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 home Premium x64 bit SP1, Ubuntu 11.1/10.1/8.2
SvcHost.exe issues. Computer will run deathly slow if not suspended.

Alright, well, here's the issue
(I come on this site all the time, for trouble shooting, thought I'd finally make an account.)
I have come to find that after start up, after a few minutes. My computer will run EXTREMELY slow, I would wait a few minutes and open up task manager, and see that my CPU (AMD athalon 64 X2 Dual core processor 6000+ 3.1GHtz) and my Ram (16GB gameing ram clocked at 800) both maxed out at 100%, with no other programs running. Just after ideling from start up.
I open the resource monitor, and click (from highest useage) and one of the SVChost.exe files are causeing all of my resources to be taken up.
"for those who will want to know, it's SVChost.exe (LocalServiceAndNoImpersonation)"

So for the past few months, it's either I don't turn my computer off, or when I do, I need to be quick and catch it when it does start eating up the resources.

The only reason why it's a pissoff to me to the point of posting about it, and actually posted about something, is because if I want to start MSN or Skype (only those 2 programs that I know about) I need to go through the whole SVChose.exe list, find that one, un-suspend it, wait for the program to finish starting up, and pray that it doesn't lock up my computer.

I have Win7 64bit Home Premium, SP1
running on my custom gaming computer built by myself.

I have already ran multiple virus scans and even the windows CMD scan. (That took like a day)

I do have teamviewer if someone eventually wants to connect and poke around to see what's going on..

EDIT: also, before this all started happening, I had about a 25second startup time (after getting passed the ASUS screen, and the "what OS do you want to load" screen. Now it's been jacked up to about 3-4mins.

EDITx2: I apologies about where I posted this, could have fallen under multiple categories. So I just threw it in general.

Check your hard disk with manufacturer diagnostics tool?

Yes I did, passed with flying colours. (Original manufacturer had no diagnostic tool, so I just used the one included with SpeedFan, was a generic brand bought on newegg)
~*Only 16, only been a nerd since I was 14, not sure what most of the terms are, do have teamviewer if you wanna take a wack at it.

Did you check what services are loading through your svchost.exe and path where your svchost.exe is loading from? It can be done either in Process Explorer or in Scvhost Analyser
