My laptop is choking to death. It started wheezing with internet explorer, but now it has full blown internal pneumonia.
I haven't gone through the advice in the slow computer guide yet but did run disk cleanup and defrag.
I took a look at my running processes and found 4 sets of svchost running. Checking into Google, I found some thoughts that this may be happening each time I run antivirus software. Unfortunately, MS doesnt tell you what to do (unless you would like to call their help desk to get the hotfix).
Note: Since this post I did find the svchost article on BC...Thanks! Wonder why MS has the article saying it is due to virus scans?
Also: I found software distribution service on my restore point recently. I have seen some articles claiming this to be bad news.
So...are these the culprits? How do I deal with them?
( is this the appropriate place for this topic? )
