Windows 7: netsvcs commits 1.8Gb RAM

17 Nov 2014   #1

Win7 Home Premium 64bit
netsvcs commits 1.8Gb RAM


lately I've found my PC slowing down to a crawl and when I check the resource monitor, it's a process called svchost.exe (netsvcs) that's committing massive resources (see attached screenshot).

I've looked here, run the Win 7 scan (sfc /scannow) which didn't find any issues, nor did a Malwarebyte scan. Most of the threads are on high CPU load but her, it seems to max out RAM.

Thanks for any help/suggestions.

svchost.exe(netsvcs) problem cpu load high
Hello, I have a problem. In the task manager -> system resources, I see that a process called svchost.exe(netsvcs) (if I'm correct) is using about 50% of cpu. The cpu is AMD dual core 2.81GHz. This doesn't always happen. Right now, it uses 48 %. Should I be concerned? Is it a legitimate process...

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?

Sun Danyong commits suicide after losing iPhone prototy
Read more on this article.. I thought that rather then using 'Foxconn Worker' (as neowin did) it deserved to has his name in the title. Sad day it is when you are forced to end your own life for losing something. Rest in peace Sun Danyong. EDIT: Title was too long I see.
