I've been experiencing a running problem with my computer running recently. I am on a windows seven computer. My memory has been consistently high, to the point that it reaches up to 95%. My first suspicion was that I was simply running too many programs and tried to cut back, but it still happened. After some digging I tracked down the source by going into processes, needing to open even the ones that required special permissions to view, and have found that the culprit is a svchost.exe program. I went into performance and into resource monitoring and found that this particular svchost program was linked to 'Netsvcs.' It devours my memory on occasion, swelling up every last drop until it takes more memory to run than most games I play on this PC. It has reached the point where I sometimes cannot open text documents or surf the web. If I click 'end process' the problem sometimes goes away for a while, sometimes it does not, and it almost always resurfaces.
A bit of research confirmed that this was actually a legitimate program, but I still find it kind of sketchy that it takes up that much memory. Something must be wrong. I'm just unsure of what could be causing it.
