It appears that my SVCHost.exe is running at almost full capacity. It takes up 99% of my CPU usage. Due to this I am limited on things I can do and games I can play as well as having sound in certain games that I do play. I have listed as much info on my computer that I can get in my signature area and if anyone could tell me how to get the speed of my processor and video I will add that as well. I have spent app. 2 hours getting all this and cant seem to find the above mentioned info.

I think my processor is 1.4g but Im not sure.....

ANY help with this problem would be GREATLY appreciated as I have been using my comp like this for about 6 months and Im working on my last nerve with this problem.

Warning: Im a gamer, not a programmer and dont know a heck of alot about how to fix a computer or problems such as this. :thumbsup:

Edit: The program is SVCHost.exe not the SVCCHost.exe in the topic header, sorry. :flowers:

Is that correct punctuation and capitalization....processes are different if the cpas are different. Here what the wintasks library says about it.

svchost.exe is a system process belonging to the Microsoft Windows Operating System which handles processes executed from DLLs. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated. Note: svchost.exe is a process which is registered as the W32.Welchia.Worm. It takes advantage of the Windows LSASS vulnerability, which creates a buffer overflow and instigates your computer to shut down. To see more information about this vulnerability please look at the following Microsoft bulletin: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/ms04-011.mspx This is a registered security risk and should be removed immediately. Please see additional details regarding this process

Try scanning with a reputable antivirus scanner...and posting back here with any details.
