Why is "ServiceHost:RemoteProcedure" using most of my memory?

I'm asking this question on behalf of my daughter.  She is using Win 8 and is finding that the process Service Host:Remote Procedure (it is NOT abbreviated like the other svc's are) is using about 80% of her memory and she can barely doing anything with her computer.  When she first starts up her computer it seems ok but very quickly becomes so slow it takes forever to execute a command.


Here is the screen shots she sent me.  (I don't know if the top one was in error and the bottom one is correcting it, or if they both apply, as she had to run off to work.)


Can you help her with this information, please?

Hi. . .


The highlighted "ServiceHost:RemoteProcedure" in your screenshot is listed as using 4.4 MB of memory - one of the lowest memory consumers listed.


Total memory currently being used in the screenshot is listed at 60%. 


Given this info, why do you believe that "ServiceHost:RemoteProcedure" is using 80% of RAM and why do you believe it is the cause of the system slowness?


I would suggest looking at start-up apps -- disable those not needed. 


Use SysInternals AutoRuns.  Download AutoRuns from Microsoft Technet to Desktop; RIGHT-click on autoruns.exe, select "Run as Administrator".  Click on "Logon" tab. To disable an item, un-check the box to the left.




Regards. . .
