Recently over the last day or two I've noticed svchost.exe *32 is taking up 20-40% of my cpu and is using over 1gig of ram... this hasn't happened before and I figured it was linked to a virus. If I close the process it takes a few minutes and then starts skyrocketing back up there.  Also when I've tried to play certain computer games the last few days the laptop shuts down and says it was overheating, I figured this is because of the added strain of the SVChost. (I know the process is normally there but figured this was the virus as its normally not that large).
