Disable each listed one at a time and see which one frees up the most memory. Right click that svchost.exe and in the context menu there is an item Go to Service. If you have Process Explorer you should be able to see which one is taking the most mem with out disabling them all one at a time.

Would you mind finding this file C:\Windows\system32\srvany.exe and uploading it to Virus Total and have it scanned, please.
VirusTotal - Free Online Virus and Malware Scan

Do you know what Service this is for? Service: KMService - Unknown owner - C:\Windows\system32\srvany.exe

I'm not finding much about the KMService

I stopped all the services one at a time and the one that reduced the most memory was Superfetch. I don't know if this is relevant or not, but I just sent back a faulty SSD HDD and copied a disk image onto a 150GB Raptor HDD until the RMA comes back. What can I do about Superfetch?

srvany.exe - srvany, Service Any, Delete and Removal Information!

It appears a normal MS thingy. Neither of the two mentioned are being hosted by your svchost.exe. On a sidenote, what are the two extra titlebar buttons in your screenshot?

LOL, I think I posted at one time that I disable the service in "Services" (you have to then do a reboot). It is always getting into the way of WMP - makes the cursor permanently flicker and uses a lot of CPU time - at least in my case. But that only happens when I have a USB stick with data attached. I think it is trying to sync WMP files with the USB stick.
I have not noticed any negative effects when the Driver Foundation is disabled - neither in Vista nor in Win7.

Those are from a program called Ultrmon which lets me toggle things between my 2 monitors and also gives me a taskbar on both monitors

Good info whs about the WMP conflict. I do not have it disabled but it's good to keep in mind for a just in case. About your name mixup, I was trying to let the user know if you have disabled it with no ill effects, that you were very trustworthy but it didn't come out right,lol.
