I have microsoft win 7 enterprise edition with intel core 2 4400 2.0 gh processor w/ 2 gigs ram I checked the task manager for processes that take alot of processing power. One process stood out in the crowd svchost.exe description is host process for windows services located in c/windows/system32

Im not sure if this is causing it or something else.

svchost is a generic process name used by a variety of legitimate and non-legitimate programs. i would check for viruses. you could also try "process explorer" (you will have to download) to see if it can identify the program(s) useng svchost processes.

yea, i have like 10 svchost.exe in task manager and a bunch of other processes that i need to get rid of . I followed the process to the folder that it orignated from and i did a virus scan with eset and SAS and came back clean. I guess im going to do a whole pc scan with both av programs first in safe mode then in regular windows mode. If i cant find anything then ill run process explorer

Download Process Explorer: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx
Unzip ProcessExplorer.zip, and double click on procexp.exe to run the program.
Click on View > Select Colunms.
In addition to already pre-selected options, make sure, the Command Line is selected, and press OK.
Go File>Save As, and save the report as Procexp.txt.
Attach the file to your next reply.

Here it is , I done few virus scans which only came up with finding cookies . you can see were the svchost.exe is still running around 75k now. But i already have killed the first svchost and it made it restart i guess. When i do that processing power is back to normal should i run process explorer before i kill it?

Actually, RAM usage shouldn't be of any interest.
What matters is CPU usage, which is quite normal with System Idle Process (CPU NOT used) at 89.23%.

Does your computer experience any visible issues?

The only visible issue i see is when that cpu is maxxed out everything is slow it was at 100% until i killed the first process
i have a windows sidebar that tells you what % of cpu is used of each core and both cores were maxxed out

With the information you have provided I believe you will need help from the malware removal team. I would like you to start a new thread and post a DDS log HERE and include a link to this thread. Please make sure that you read the information about getting started before you start your thread.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient. Help is on the way!

Malware topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic376938.html

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MR Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
