I am trying to determine whether I have a virus, which leads me to my question. I'm running Windows 8 (not 8.1). If I look at system performance in the Task Manager in the process tab, I see an unnamed process that uses up various amounts of system resources.
It uses up to 1.6 Mbps of network traffic, 5% of the CPU, 600 MB of memory, and small amounts of disk traffic. Sometimes it is quiet and sometimes not. The network traffic is predominantly downloads.
In Task Manager, if I right click on the process and select Open File Location, it shows C:\Windows\SysWOW64\svchost.exe.
My question: Is this normal behavior for one of the svchost processes, or do I have a virus? Thanks.
