Windows 7: Svchost.exe PID 1068 (LocalSystemNetworkRestricted) High CPU usage

Svchost.exe PID 1068 (LocalSystemNetworkRestricted) High CPU usage

I've been experiencing this problem long time ago but it decided to solve it once for all.
I know that is a common problem, i've researched in may pages but with unsatisfactory results.

So the svchost is taking up to 50% of cpu usage from time to time
I scanned malwarebytes and everything is clear.

Could it be windows updater?
Because it does not happen everyday

These are the services that are running:

I should add that it doesn't happen all the time.
And If if kill the process the cpu usage goes 3% again, which is totally normal

What is this svchost.exe (localsystemnetworkrestricted)?
I have 8 gb RAM and this thing is taking about 150mbs of RAM. Should I leave it on? I noticed this after I synced my ps3 with my pc to stream media directly from the WMP 12 playlist.
