Hi, my svchost is using 100% unused cpu, making my computer run incredibly slow. When I end the process it starts back up within 30 seconds. I've used multiple virus programs, cleaned and fixed my registry, and have tried to update windows. when i click go to service nothing is highlighted, I even tried manually clicking go to process on all running services.
I've searching on how to fix this for 3 days straight, any help would be appreciated.
