I have been encountering an error with a program called "svchost.exe" that runs on startup. It runs in the background, but it just completely eats up my CPU. It will max out my CPU at 99% for 5-10 minutes each time I start up, crippling my from doing other work. I have to wait until the process is finished before I can do any internet browsing, word processing, or like work. The program seems to be important for OS running as one Process Library describes it like this: "svchost.exe is a system process belonging to the Microsoft Windows Operating System which handles processes executed from DLLs. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated." So I don’t want to perminantly disable this program. Does anyone know what might be causing this problem and how to fix it?
