Svchost.exe Hangs Taking Up 50% Cpu Usage
Posted 03 May 2006 - 06:01 PM
Svchost.exe has 6 instances running on my system at once which isn't much of a problem. What is a problem is the largest one (21, 608 K currently but I've seen it to 30,000 K or as low as 16, 000 K) will freeze when the system comes back out of hybernation. It doesn't always do it but it does it more often if I put the computer into hybernation after listening to music. It will then take 50 % of the CPU power which drives the fans on my computer crazy and slows the system a little. The only way I've seen to get rid of it is to close the bad svchost in the task manager and restart the system. If you just restart the system will not restart with svchost doing this. Also, when this particular svchost is closed in the task manager the sound will not work. I've tried uninstalling my wireless card drivers, regular network card drivers, and sound drivers and then reinstalling them but it hasn't fixed this particular problem. The problem svchost is listed under the username "SYSTEM" in the task manager. The others are in "SYSTEM" "NETWORK SERVICE" and "LOCAL SERVICE."
Do you think posting a hijackthis log in the hijackthis forum would help?

If that doesn't work, take tg1911's advice
Have you tried starting in Safe Mode?
How to start Windows in Safe Mode
Reboot into Safe Mode with networking, which will allow access to the internet.
Update your security programs, and run them.
That's my advice atleast - wait for someone better to come along though haha.
Hope I helped.

It would probably be a good idea to post a log in the HijackThis! forums. Read this first.
