I just started using a laptop with a new install of Windows 7.  I noticed that sometimes it drags some and also that under 'Processes" there are 8 to 10 instances of svchost.exe running and using a lot of CPU and memory, even when I do not have any networks or internet connections.  Is this normal?

What is "a lot of CPU and memory" in your mind?

Thank-you.  Your information helped me rule out some things and solve this.

 

(it was using 60-100% CPU and 2.1-2.4 out of 2.75gb of memory when I had nothing open.)

I think you misunderstood my last post.  Your previous information helped me solve the problem.  It is fixed.  Thanks, again.

Great...I'm somewhat oblivious to reality at times, did not mean to overlook previous post :).

 

Glad you solved it, happy computing :).
