A few days ago I downloaded a 3GB update for my Garmin SatNav maps. Upon running it it failed. I tried several times etc. That's not the problem I'm here with though.
Since then my Vista SP1 machine periodically goes 'mad', the hard disk and fan go wild and the whole machine slows up every hour or so.
Upon investigating with Task Manager, Resource Monitor and Process Explorer I noticed that an svchost.exe process keeps reading the 3GB Garmin file (Garmin_rmu_cneunt2010.exe). The process in question is "svchost.exe -k LocalSystemNetworkRestricted".
This process is running the following services
Image Name: svchost.exe
Services: AudioEndpointBuilder, EMDMgmt, Irmon, Netman, PcaSvc, SysMain, TabletInputService, TrkWks, UxSms, WdiSystemHost, Wlansvc, WPDBusEnum, wudfsvc
The two that stood out to me were SysMain which is Superfetch - please tell me Windows isn't trying to load this 3GB monster into memory because I've run it five times(?!?) - and WdiSystemHost which is "Diagnostice System Host" - maybe Vista is trying to gather information about the failed Garmin update for its "Problem Reports and Solutions" app.
Has anyone got any ideas what is going on? Are my guesses remotely correct?
Machine: Acer AMD Turion X2 dual-core Laptop
O/S: Vista SP1
