svchost.exe is taking most of the available memory RAM.

I am having this issue and the only solution I have done is to disable the Windows Update Service and the computer comes back to normal.

 

Can someone give me some suggestions? 

 

I have over 500 workstations that are having this issue.

Are these workstations fully updated?

Some of them yes but not all.

There's a KB that addresses that specific issue. You could install it on a few workstations and see if it does the trick. Even though the latest Rollup update (July 2016) should have it. Trying to find it now.

By any chance you know what is the KB number?

Found it.

https://www.reddit.com/r/sysadmin/comments/3frcib/heads_up_kb3050265_fixes_major_memory_leak_in/

Original KB: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3050265
Replacement: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3065987

I think that if you install the latest Windows Update Client Update for Windows 7, it'll have these fixes as well.
