My computer is having a major problem. When I start it up it runs so slow that can't do anything except open the task manager and find the svchost.exe file that is using 99% of my computers memory and end the process. when i do this my computer then functions normally except I can't get into any of the controls for my firewall. Also when i start my computer in safe mode it works fine. i ran the process explorer and found it but have idea how to fix anything. thats over my head. thank you to anyone who has an idea how to fix this.

For more information you might look here: How to determine what services are running under a SVCHOST.EXE process

With more information as to precisely what is running we can better help you diagnose your problem.
