I am having trouble with my pc freezing after I start it up for about 10 to 15 minutes and on the taskmanager svchost.exe is at 99%. I am not to PC savvy, however I am a student and rely on my computer to do all of my homework. I would greatly appreciate any help anyone could give me with this problem. I have Kaspersky antivirus software, microsoft office and nothing else that did not come with the computer software.

Try turning of/disable automatic updates
Start>Control Panel>Security Center>Automatic Updates (Under Manage Security Settings For)
Then Click Automatic Updates>Click turn of Automatic Updates>Click Apply>Click Ok

Reboot then check the task manager and see if svchost.exe is still running high
I also got thesame experience so try to be quick as programs and the reboot option may not respond

This kind of behaviour can be caused by a malware infection. I would recommend running some online scans just to rule out that possibility.
