Hey.... im currently studying in a college and im living in the hostel. They provide us with free internet.
The problem is, when im connected to the internet ( connect LAN plug dats all) , SOMETIMES my svchost would go up to 50% resources.

Then, i just unplug the LAN cable, then the svchost drops to 0% . One of my frens say my computer is not updated etc etc so he help me update to SP3, but the problem is still back.
When i plug back the LAN cable, sometimes the svchost goes up to 50%, but sometimes it doesn't.

Any solutions ?

I guess I have to ask...why do you think that's a problem?

Resources exist to be utilized by running programs/processes.

Svchost.exe (several instances of it) normally reflect valid programs/processes running in the background.

You can investigate: How to determine what services are running under a SVCHOST.EXE process - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/list-services-running-under-svchost.exe-process/
