So I opened the PC yesterday and I was getting this huge lag on the desktop, even in the Welcome window. After openning the Task Manager I noticed this crazy 95% of physical memory, the CPU was also constantly at 50% due to that pesky svchost.exe. After further study I noticed that the physical memory usage wouldn't drop below 80% even after closing a lot of processes. So after a few hangs I managed to google out the issue and some threads on the Microsoft website pointed it to this faulty WMPNetworkSvc, a so-called Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service. Indeed, the service was running so I stopped it and made sure it wouldn't automatically start ever again. Things got a bit better, but Task Manager still shows that absurd number of physical memory usage around 93% . I can now surf the web quite smoothly, watch videos or listen to music, but I still can't play any video games properly.
So, what suggestions do you guys have to improve my overall performance? I seriously don't know what could still be causing me under-normal performance. Maybe something with that svchost.exe ?
