svchost.exe consuming 100% of CPU after I login


K

kovster

Every so often, as soon as I login to my PC, svchost.exe starts pushing my
CPU usage up to 100% and I have no idea why. This lasts beetween 5-15 minutes
and then it resumes normal CPU usage. It's process ID from task manager is
1084.

Is anyone able to help me with this issue? Greatly appreciated

If you have Windows Defender installed this runs as a service when you
initially boot up and login, so it could be this. Equally,it could be
any other antivirus / anti malware software you have installed running
a check when you login.

What is the image name of the process producing high CPU usage? If it is
one of the svchost entries you should use Process Explorer to identify
which. The Process ID number changes each time you restart your
computer.

Download Process Explorer.
For further information about Process Explorer see here:

It would be helpful if you could post the Command Line of the svchost
process generating the excessive CPU usage. In Process Explorer place
cursor on Process and select Properties, Image.

What are your anti-virus and anti-spyware arrangements? What is your
firewall?

Hope this helps.
