Windows 7: CPU Usge 25% svchost.exe

11 Jan 2013   #11

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Is there a superfetch inside that 25% svchost if you look to what its running?
I disabled my superfetch in services and removed all the prefetch entries in C:\Windows and knocked a svchost I had from 100,000+K to just a few thousand K and have had no issues with disabling the superfetch.
Just a shot in the dark to a high runnning svchost.

Disabling Superfetch makes your system slower.

I haven't noticed my system slow down since I disabled the superfetch but I don't have all the bells and whistles some of the new systems have either.
My system is pretty basic and like a old 67 chevy thats easy to fix.

I am curious concerning what this is. When viewing task manager for "All Users", I see this process using almost 50% of physical memory. It appears using over 200,000K and a second time at 16,000K. Thanks in advance for the help.
