I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, this is an issue that I've been facing for a long time, but until now, I managed to fix it by doing a system restore, but it always came back after a couple of months. Yesterday I reinstalled Windows 8.1 with I hope that the problem would be gone, but after a couple of hours the issue was there again, and I have no idea what to do now, it usually uses around 35-40% of my CPU (FX-8320), it seems like that it is also causing other processes to use more cpu power than normal, usually those are programs that I installed (Google Chrome, Asus Al Suite II, Advanced System care, Asus Routine Controller) When I kill the process after a couple of seconds it just restarts itself.

Running Windows 8.1 on Lenovo G505s with 6 GB ram and 2.4 GHz 4-core CPU.

For the past week or so, I noticed that my laptop has been running slightly slower, has gaps or pauses where no user input is accepted, and my battery has not been lasting as long. Today, I looked at my task manager to kill a non-responsive app, and noticed 80% of my memory was in use, and 70% of my CPU was used up. Turns out both the top spots are taken by "Service Host: Local Service" which is using 15.9% CPU and 359.3 MB RAM. I use this laptop every day for school where for about an hour, I don't have access to a charger, so I need to have as many high profile tasks killed as I can safely do so. The processes running inside Local Service are:
DHCP ClientHomeGroup ProviderSecurity CenterTCP/IP NetBIOS HelperWindows AudioWindows Connection ManagerWindows Event Log

The high CPU usage gets worse when I don't have a separate mouse plugged in because my Touchpad drivers take up anywhere from 13-50% CPU, which has been slowing me to a crawl. Is there anything I can do to keep my computer running, but with more available resources short of going out an buying more? I have to be at school with this machine in 2 hours.

So I've been having this problem for days now, two tasks named Service Host: Local Service(Network Restricted) and Service Host: Local Service(No Network) keep using up ALL of my cpu, theyre usually accompanied by any app I have open, so my task manager is basically like this for example:

Service Host: Local Service(Network Restricted) 40% cpu usage
Skype 29% cpu usage
Service Host: Local Service(No Network) 26% cpu usage

If I close skype, the usage goes down to 2 percent for a brief second and then any other app I have open launches up instead of skype and uses up all of my cpu.

I've tried several virus scans and I've done my best to clean up the system but I still have this problem, any solutions?

A:Service Host: Local Service very high cpu usage

You could start pinning down the problem by using Task Manger and look in the processes tab and scroll down to the Svchost using the CPU time. If you expand it, you can see what is running in that host. But I do not believe it will give you individual usage on each service.

If you open Resource Monitor (resmon in a run box) You can go to the CPU tab, check the CPU usage and find the svchost you want and put a check mark. It will then list the services running in that process in the Services window and how much the Average CPU time is being used. Get us a picture, or let us know what is causing the high usage.

Keep track of the PID (Process ID) number so you can confirm which svchost you are checking. Those numbers may be specific to just your system. There may be other pertinent info about the situation in some other windows also.

When I look in my task manager it appears that "Service Host" and "network, windows firewall, diagnostic policy service and base filtering engine" Are taking up 100% of my disk space.

Hi,
I consider this issue can be caused by incompatible with Drivers, please open Device Manager and check updates for all devices, if there are some, please install them.

 
Also, I suggest we test the issue in Windows 8.1 Best performance mode:
 
 ? Press the Windows Key + x to open the Power User menu, then open the Control Panel.
 ? Now choose System, click the Advanced System Settings link in the left pane and choose the Settings Button under the Performance Tab to conjure your performance options.
 ? Change the Visual Affects setting to Adjust for best performance.
 
To do the further troubleshooting, please help to capture the CPU trace by using WPT (http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/4847.install-the-windows-performance-toolkit-wpt-en-us.aspx)

On a laptop running Windows 10, I began having trouble launching Minecraft because the update of the native launcher lags terribly then stalls and tells me the update can't continue. MY ISP checked and seems I am using all of my bandwidth. They suggested some other update running in background, but I couldn't find any.

In my ISP walking me through some stuff, I'm finding that in Ctrl-Alt-Del/Task Manager/Network, shows something called "Service Host: Local System (15) is running at 2.1 MB/s - that's my limit. But, the 15 sub-processes under it show no activity.

This is on a laptop sitting next to my desktop, and the desktop seems to be OK, and it also shows the "Service Host..." but with only a few sub-processes, and just a few KB of Network activity, it's just on my laptop.

Rebooting the laptop doesn't seem to make any difference - that 15 sub-processes comes right back.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

As soon as I start an application (Cadence Allegro PCB Designer 16.5 but I don't think it's relevant) my CPU usage gets to the roof and stays there long after I killed the application and I believe I every associated process. The CPU usage is so high that the battery will be drained after about 45 minutes (It usually last about 3 hours).

According to my task manager the responsible is "Service Host: Local System (Network Restricted)". As a matter of fact, preventing the executable from accessing the network sort of solves the issue. I don't believe I need that executable to access the network but I'd like to understand what kind of network service can consume that much CPU (was actually affraid of overheating) and to know if there's a more appropriate way to solve this.

I pretty much don't really know much about my p.c. system as I'm not usually the one looking into the works of my p.c. In fact all I know is what I've seen others do. So forgive me in my ignorance. I've looked around and saw that either no one has my issue

I bought a laptop (with windows 8) bout 3-4 months ago. I not sure if the issues started when I upgraded to windows 8.1 or just afterwards but they've been going on for a few weeks. My computer is running out of virtual memory at the most random times. Usually
it starts to run out of virtual memory after a couple of days of it being left on (with standby). If I close most my active programs the memory changes by 2-10%. If I have more then four programs open at this stage it warns me that my virtual memory is being
used up. (I am usually using Chrome (or firefox but that would refuse to stay open for more then 5 seconds so I uninstalled it), steam (chatting only), musicbee and task manager.)

A:"service host: Local system (network restricted)(11)" eating virtual memory

Hi,
First, let me explain that Virtual memory is used when your RAM is filled up or when you put a laptop into hibernate mode (hibernate mode essentially dumps your RAM onto the hard drive so it can pick up where it left off even after power is shut off).
Since the general shut down of Windows 8 or 8.1 likes a combined hibernate  so that windows can start up quickly, I consider that this issue is caused by such shut down and fast boot.
I suggest we disable fast boot to check the issue:
To Turn "Fast Startup" On or Off in System Settings on this article:
http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/6320-fast-startup-turn-off-windows-8-a.html
Also, we can try to reset virtual memory to see what?s going on.
Configure Virtual Memory in Windows 8
http://www.trainingtech.net/configure-virtual-memory-in-windows-8/
If the issue persists, please test it in Clean boot mode:
How to perform a clean boot to troubleshoot a problem in Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135
 
If the issue doesn?t appear, you can determine which one can be the cause by using dichotomy in MSconfig. Checking on half of Non-Microsoft service and restart, determining which half of the services cause the issue and repeating to check half of the problematic

These do not come up as part of the normal updates, and the Task Manager shows them as Windows processes, so someone PLEASE, clue me in here. My eBay business has been decimated by this nonsense, it's been happening for over a month now, and I am not paying all this money for internet so I can wait an hour to go online! This is like 1990's dial-up all over again! Appreciate any info, and thanks for your time.

Hey guys-
I know this question has been asked for other Windows OS's, but none of their fixes apply on Windows 8.
When I log in, everything is fine, everything is very smooth and even faster than when I used Windows 7, but after a few minutes my CPU becomes locked at ~99%, mostly because of svchost.
As it appears on Task Manager, the process is Service Host (No Impersonation). The sub-processes are Function Discovery Resource Publication, SSDP Recovery, Time Broker, and UPnP Device Host. I tried several fixes that worked in XP or 7, but they either
can't be used in 8 or detect nothing is wrong.
This is the only thing that makes me dislike 8 so far, a fix would be fantastic.

The uPNP service causes the high CPU usage while waiting for compatible devices:

Hi,
Thank you for writing to us!
We would suggest you to first back up the data on the system.Try the following steps:
1- Cleaning the vents to check if there is dust.
2- Update the BIOS on the system.
3- Run a hardware diagnostics on the system.
You can also boot the system into safe mode and check if the same thing happens.
Thanks

For some reason my pc is going crazy with this Service Host. Between every 4 and 10 seconds it is hogging anything up to 40% ... Can you help me understand what is going on? Or if we need any other information to help me solve it?

When trying to start EAPhost services get error 1075: could not start because a dependency service could not be found or has been marked for deletion (not verbatim).

The Extensible Authentication Host Service has been deleted from starting with the registry with hijack this or something similar (not really sure my broter broked it somehow). I was hoping someone could export the EapHost key from:
HKLM/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/...
using a good vista or win 7 and post the text here so I could try importing it.
I'm pretty sure I've done this before and it worked.
Any other suggestions on how to fix this are appreciated.

I would try performing a system repair with the Windows 7 Disk instead of using someone's registry entry. That way you can make sure that any other damage that has been done can be repaired.

Hi everyone,
 
My laptop has been acting a little funny recently and I'm wondering why.
 
On Monday when I booted up my laptop (Samsung using Windows 8), I suddenly had a BSOD due to an error called "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA." As soon as my computer restarted, it was fine. I did notice that there were two new notification icons in the lower right-hand area of my taskbar: the little Windows action centre flag with a red X, and AVG's icon, also with a red X.
 
Yesterday I noticed that my laptop had been warmer than usual and the fan's noise was more noticeable than usual. I shut down the laptop to give it time to cool down. However, when it went to shut down, the screen was black but the power light stayed on and the fan was still running. I had to press the power button to make it shut down.
 
Once it booted back up, I checked Task Manager for anything unusual. AVG had been taking up about 5% disk usage and various Service Host: Local Systems were occasionally using ~25% CPU. I ran a MalwareBytes scan, which came back clean, so I uninstalled AVG (since I never use it anyway) and shut down for the night.
 
Today, my laptop is still warmer/louder than usual and every now and then, a service host will hog 25% of my CPU and 59.3 MB of memory. I did some Googling and found a few threads on here from people who have had the same problem. They were directed to use some antiviruses and other programs which fixed the problem.
 
Could this be caused by a... Read more

Lately I've been noticing something using a lot of the CPU in my desktop computer, while I would expect the system to be idle. One of the service hosts seems to be responsible, as can be seen in the picture below. I tried restarting it with Process Explorer, but it will not allow it, and I don't know how to take control of it. It will eventually stop, but it happens fairly often, maybe once a day, and it's a bit of a nuisance.

I have run Malwarebytes in addition to my current version of Norton Security, and it always comes up clean. I took a screenshot with this host's associated services displayed. I wonder if someone can look at it and tell me what might be going on. Or at least how to take administrative control so I can try restarting it.
Thanks,
Rusty

This is a tough one because there are so many services to choose from. Maybe you can explore this PID 1472 when there is no problem so that we can narrow down the service that is the culprit.

Recently I tried to update my Webroot Internet Security essentials. I was asked to uninstall the program and then the update would take place. Long story short, it never worked so I was able to finally take Webroot off my machine. I then tried to download Avast and got the message that the service host has stopped working. I rebooted and tried again to no avail. This seems to happen everytime I've tried to download something. I am currently trying the method of going into my task scheduler and disabling the RASclient or RASAgent(something like that) but i wondered if there was anything else I could try if this doesn't work. Right now, I'm downloading Avast antivirus and the download is moving but it seems to be moving much slower than normal. Could this be due to the disabling of the RASclient or RASagent that I mentioned earlier? Please help...it's driving me nuts!!!

Hello Tech People:

Thanks for looking at this

This is the basic problem I am getting:



I am on XP (32-bit versions) SP2 P4 1.5 GHz and 1 Gig RAM. I am frequently getting this error for about a month now.
When I click for details this is what I get:
Error Signature:

EventType : BEX P1 : svchost.exe P2 : 5.1.2600.2180 P3 : 41107ed6

C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER5b1d.dir00\appcompat.txt

All of a sudden this error pops out and what it does is that if i click on "Close" button. my broadband internet connection stops. The status shows connected but I am not able to open any sites then and if I just ignore this error by dragging it to one side without closing it, i get the same problem with my internet after a few minutes i.e. I am unable to open any sites.
I have to restart the PC before I can access the net again. Everything else seems to work normally except the net.

Hello

This is my first post in this forum.My name is Ankit
i am using Dell Optiplex 3010 in my office.There are around 40 systems and all have same issue
Config is as follow
Windows 8 Genuine 64 bit
2GB DDR 3
Dell Optiplex 3010

Now the problem is there is one service Service Host: Local Network Restricted it consumes 100% disk usage and computer starts acting.

i have to manually kill this process from task manager around 4-5 times to end it.

Please help me is their any fix for it?
Ankit

A:service host: 100% disk usage

Use Resource Monitor to see what it is.

My guess is that you're using a poor antivirus or have never disabled Windows Search service.

Or even more likely, related to Virtual Memory, because of only 2 GB RAM and x64 system.

How-To HOST a Computer Service/Game

Definition: Hosting; making a program available to the public Internet, using World Wide Web browser with a URL, FTP for file up/down loads, or Telnet/SSH for shell account access.

The mechanical issues are:
1. Obtain a Domain Name, which will assign a static IP address for your Domain.
2. Determine which system to which the IP address will point.
3. Port Forward the gateway router to the system with the program that is always running.
4. Open the required Port(s) for the program on that system.​
Licensing issues may restrict particulars of the above and you need to validate these before you finalize items (2-3). For example, a normal End-User-License from an ISP typically comes with restrictions on hosting anything, including website, file serves and shell accounts and contain clauses which allow the ISP to disconnect you if violated.
Typically, to enable hosting, the ISP offers a Business Class License, which will then enable anything you, need.

In addition, software often comes with a Single User license and requires a multi-user or Commercial Usage license for everything else. After all your hard work (and expense to make this work), get this right before you get into trouble.

Details
(1) Obtaining a Domain Name. For an annual fee, one of the Registrars will assign you a public IP address, associate it to the Domain Name of your choice (assuming it is still available), and make an entry into the global DNS s... Read more
