I reformatted my recently (2 weeks ago) and today, updated my PC through Windows Update (almost 200) and after, my pc is laggy.

I went to Resource Monitor and found the process "svchost.exe (netsvcs)" is taking about 512 mb RAM (My total physical RAM is 1GB.

What do I do? Thanks in advance

 

EDIT: I don't know what happened, but now it's back to it's normal state (500 MB RAM in use). And even if it was in 90% RAM, it was just like nothing happened, little performance difference (w/ Chrome open). I will post if it really is a problem to me.

Chrome itself will sometimes use more than 1GB of RAM...IMO, you have insufficient resources (RAM) to effectively do very much with a Win 7 install.

 

Typical processes like browser and system security software...by themselves...will frequently use more system resources/RAM than you  state is your situation.

It's not happening anymore...

 

Anyways, I just use this PC for browsing and games for low-end PC. I don't regret migrating from Win XP because there is no significant difference in performance with a 200MB RAM gap at start-up (300MB-Win XP, 500MB-Win 7). In fact, I think it is faster than before.

Most often the surge in svchost.exe (netsvcs) is due to updates.

And the most often updates that I see causing this are Windows Updates and Antivirus/Internet Security updates (that auto update when you startup).


My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Oh, I see. There was a time when SP1 was the only remaining update to be installed. After installing SP1, there came 191 important + 5 optional updates. That was where the RAM increase probably happened. Thanks for explaining!
