My svchost.exe process at one point or another its memory will slowly start to increase over time and if left running will reach over 1,000,000 K. This is not normal for this computer as its a couple years old.

Have you run full scans with both your anti virus app and MalwareBytes? If not, please do so.

Hello ShinVon and Welcome -
I am currently showing a total of 25400K on my desktop from 5 instances of svchost.exe including / Network Service / Local Service x 2 / System x2

Can you please check if you have more than 1 instance of svchost.exe showing, and which is the one that concerns you most at this time -
Malwarebytes Free Download link -
Thank You -

Hi -
I think you will find it is about normal for a Windows7 system - A quick conversion rate formula shows this is no problem at the moment -
This should not slow your system in any way at all - 1,000,000K = 0.119GB and I think your system can easily spare 0.119GB of space.
Most basic Windows7 computers are fitted with a minimum of 2GB to 4GB of RAM and often more. So 0.119GB is nothing at all -

It would need to be using well over 10,000,000Kb (Ten Million KB) for one item to have any influence on any clean computer -
Themes, Winmgmt, Browser etc are normal processes that will take a certain usage and if you do not like them, first disable Themes and see how far it reduces

Can you please list your Active Antivirus program, and tell us how much it is using in Process Manager -

Thank You -

Hi -
That would be about right for AVG basic Antivirus -
Have you noted what I showed above for the usage of your processes and how small they actually are once they are converted -

Your Windows7 Operating System alone usually takes more than all those processes put together,

I hope that this solves your concern about usage displayed in your Process Manager, and how small it really is.

Thank You -
