Windows 7: netsvcs commits 1.8Gb RAM

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.

My PC seems to access DataStore.edb a lot, bringing my hard drive to a crawl for minutes at a time. It happens when I first boot up, and on and off as I use it throughout the day. What is triggering this to be accessed? Is there anything I can do to minimize this file being accessed so often? (no...

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.
