svchost.exe using too much memory


M

mefisto_del_grande

There are 8 svchost.exe are in active processes, 4 are SYSTEM processes, 2
are NETWORK SERVICES and 2 LOCAL SERVICES, one of those processes consumes
about 30 MB of memory constantly (one that is SYSTEM process) rest of
svchost.exe-s are consuming 3 to 6 MBs of memory. I am sure that something is
wrong with that 30 MB process... there is no other svchost.exe except for one
in Windows/system32 folder. Can anybody help me, any advise ??

To find out more about which Svchost entry is causing the problem try
Process Explorer:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/SystemInformation/ProcessExplorer.mspx

Once you have Process Explorer installed and running:
In the taskbar select View and check 'Show Process Tree' and 'Show Lower
Pane' options.
(This will provide some of the detailed info you may need)
Expand the Process tree until 'Services.exe' has been expanded.
Next move the mouse cursor over the Svchost.exe process that you are
interested in.
Or expand the Svchost entry if you see a + sign to the left of Svchost
entry.
(You should now see a pop up with a list of services associated with the
Svchost.exe you chose)
Next double click on the Svchost.exe process that you are interested in.
The 'Properties' Window should now be displayed with numerous tabs
available.

Process Explorer provides more information than Task Manager.

Download Process Explorer.

For further information about Process Explorer see here:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/SystemInformation/ProcessExplorer.mspx

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.

You will need to run a thorough scan and disable the Windows Updates service
and see if the CPU usage will ease a little bit!.

Depends on what NT services got rolled up into that instance of
svchost.exe. Use SysInternals' Process Explorer to see what services
are rolled into that one process. Could be, for example, your
anti-virus program's service is in there.

In Process Explorer, hover the mouse over the process to see what
services got rolled into it. If you want to get more info,
right-click on the process and select Properties. Then look under the
Services tab. Could be you have one svchost.exe process that rolled
together lots of NT services.

You can always decide not to run many NT services. Many might not be
needed in your situation. You'll have to figure out if all those NT
services are needed. Some can be set to Manual mode (rather than
automatic Start mode on Windows startup) or can be Disabled if you
never want them to load.
