I am not overly concerned about it being a virus(because it is  verified microsoft ) but for as you will see the first 3-4 min. this uses most of my CPU and then it settles down to a normal level.19,212k is the finished memory usage according to task manager

After trying the patch listed in the article and rebooting the comuter the Svchost only took up 80% of CPU but that was for 30 sec and more than like that was while the host file was loading. Thank you for the help.
