I have an emachines laptop NV53 w 4 gigs of Ram running Windows 7 Home Professional. It does not have a malware problem and moderator Bloopie asked me to post a new thread here about the processor. Laptop has been running really hot and he thinks it may be that SvcHost and its child programs(?) are the problem. My question to Bloopie below resulted in this new thread:
I have been watching it for about an hour now, logged into BleepingComputer and it is running 100% CPU usage. But most of this - 92%-97% - is SvcHost.exe. So I assume this is OK and is not slowing down the laptop? I have read about SvcHost and assume that I need to leave it running??? Assume that it runs normally with SvcHost taking so much of the CPU??
He says sometime Win7 updates (and other things) cause this and it will stress my processor which was running at 80C.
The Task Manager screen shows that my memory (4 gigs) is not being used up but that 100% of my processor is in use all the time. Hence the slowing down. If I close the internet, it runs better but with Chrome, all the processor is taken up. A lot of times it seems to be SvcHost or multiple Chrome.exe files running.
