Hi,

 

on start-up, my computer tends to be drastically slow. when I check the processes and appilications running, i noticed that svchost.exe is running at 100 % CPU usage. this happens everytime i start up. usually i  just end the process and then things run more normally. i would like to know what causes this and how i can resolve it without having to end process everytime. 

 

thanks
