Try narrowing down your search and identify the exact process by following this guide: How to determine what services are running under a SVCHOST.EXE process

Commandline:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost -k rpcss

C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe

the 2 I have identified is apperantly Something called remote procedure call and the second one simply just seems to be svchost.exe and nothing else.

Does that mean anything to anyone?

Those two are needed Windows functions, part of the O/S performing normally.

You can see more detail about RPC by taking a look in services...Start/Run...type services.msc and hit Enter or OK.

Worth reading, IMO: http://ask-leo.com/svchost_and_svchostexe_...s_and_more.html

Ive already gotten a fairly good understanding og what svchost and RPC is but im not getting any closer to discovering where the memory leak stems from, and I have tried running virus scans to no avail.

That google search is not much help, it mostly just lists tools for finding memory leaks in ones own programmed software. Is there anyone that can help with the problem?
