I noticed my laptop running slow this afternoon.

Brought up task manager and found it at almost 100% cpu usage.

I have a svchost that is hovering right at 50 % all the time.

There are also 7 more svchost that all show 0%.

I ran malwarebytes and it shows nothing.

 

What else should I try?

 

Thanks,

Hello willy800,

If you right click on the svchost process that is using 50% in task manger and select - 'Go to service(s)'

 

What services are highlighted?

It's now not doing it, but I think it is Windows Audio Endpoint Builder.

At least that's the one with the highest memory used, which is now only at 99,000.

 

Thanks,

Tim

That's great news!

If Windows Audio Endpoint Builder is using a lot of memory please do the following

 

1) Press the windows key & R at the same time

2) In the box type the following services.msc
3) Browse down to Windows Audio Endpoint Builder 

4) Right click this and select 'restart'

 

Now check the memory usage.

 

Regards,
