Programming and Web Development Forums - WINDOWS SERVER - Microsoft Small Business Server
I have read the previous posts and am not yet getting a solutions t our problem. Here is our situation.: We rolled some windows updates this week on XP pro SP3 machines via WSUS. Since then most machines on the network are staring up and then the SVCHOST process grab the cpu to 100% for about five minutes then it releases and the machines in question will work for sometime and then the svchost process will fire again. I have noted also that outlook seem to be most affected application it freezes up when this svchost begins it's cycle. I did a tasklist and found that on all these machines this process controls the following process: svchost.exe 1072 AudioSrv, BITS, Browser, CryptSvc, Dhcp, dmserver, ERSvc, EventSystem, helpsvc, lanmanserver, lanmanworkstation, Netman, Nla, RasMan, Schedule, seclogon, SENS, SharedAccess, ShellHWDetection, TapiSrv, TrkWks, W32Time, winmgmt, wuauserv, WZCSVC Any ideas on the way forward?

My svchost.exe is taking 100% of the CPU after boot. I'm lucky if I can even get into the Task Manager before my mouse freezes up with a nice little beep associated with the freeze. After numerous "slow" restarts, I can get into the Task Manager and end the process > svchost.exe > SYSTEM and the computer will go back to a normal CPU and things work again. I have read many different articles and many say to turn off Windows Auto Update -- I have done this. I use Spyware Doctor / AVG Free / XoftSpy -- I have tried disabling them in the start-up menu...that doesn't seem to help. Anyway, I'm stuck and frustrated with the svchost.exe deal!!! As an added FYI - svchost.exe is listed 12 times in my Task Manager (7 times with the word SYSTEM by it -- 3 times with LOCAL SERVICE by it -- 2 times with NETWORK SERVICE by it). I did try and install WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe and when I run it it says "Install is not needed since WIndows Update Agent is already installed." Any help on this is appreciated. Thanks much.
Hi, My PC is always running at 100 % CPU and is slow. When I kill the process svchost process, the system comes back to normal and I can run all of my applications. I have run all the spy, virus, performance software, but can not find anything wrong. I have read that killing the svchost process is bad but it seems it is the only temp solution I have. Any recommendation? Fred (to send email, get the lead out)
Using an Inspiron 2200. I have a 1.4GHz processor (Intel Celeron M). I use WinXP Home. 20GB hard drive (I know it's small but I have 300+ GB worth of externals, but that's besides the point, or is it?). 1.24GB of RAM. I have every spyware and adware program on earth (the legit ones like Ad-aware and Spyware Sweeper) and I run them regularly. I have a paid subscription to Norton Internet Security, and I use it. I defrag and empty my temp files regularly. I usually have Adobe Photoshop CS2 (and work with very large graphics), Microsoft Outlook, AIM and a web browser or two open regularly with my high speed internet connected. Task Manager tells me on average I have 35-45 processes running at any given time. My CPU usage is usually at 100%, which is NOT right. In task manager the process that is hogging anywhere from 95-100% of my CPU is explorer.exe EVERYTHING I do lately takes forever to load, and sometimes just locks up. Especially when using Outlook, and when loading large files into Adobe. It's getting really bad and I don't know what to do to speed things up. Buy and install a better processor? Is it a virus? My drivers? Should my on-board hard drive be larger? Memory optimizer programs don't really do the trick, but something tells me that my memory isn't a problem and that it is my CPU and explorer.exe PLEASE HELP!
