Poor Performance from Windows 10 - High CPU usage from SVCHOST

Q: Poor Performance from Windows 10 - High CPU usage from SVCHOST

Evening Folks,

I just recently installed Windows 10 on my Dell Inspiron Laptop and so far I am not impressed at all - in fact, I am very seriously debating one of two actions - re-install Windows 7 or switching to an entirely different OS.

The reason for reverting to Windows 7/switching OS are as follows:
1) Currently with an idle system (i.e. no applications running at all), an svchost process is using anywhere from 40 to 60% of my cpu. When I did a tasklist on this process the following processes are attached to this one pid: Appinfo, BITS, Browser, DsmSVC, IKEEXT, iphlpsvc, LanmanServer, lfsvc, ProfSvc, Schedule, SENS, ShellHWDetction, Themes, UserMananger, Winmgmt, wuauserv. My question is this - is it necessary for these processes to be run. If they are, then am I looking at only being able to use 50% of my processor (since this one pid is using the rest of it)?

2) For a virus scanner - I am using McAffee and under Windows 7, it took my laptop 24 hours to scan 231 GB of data. Since I switched to Windows 10 (Same hardware, same memory, etc) it now takes my virus scanner over 48 hours to scan 231 GB of data.

3) If I had not been poking around and trying to change my update settings, I would never have found out that Microsoft expects their users to update the windows of the other users (Microsoft calls it Dynamic Updates). Now this is all well and good if some one had said something since I would have loved to know about it sooner since I am on a metered service.

4) Some of the programs that comes with Windows 10, I have no use for but yet I can not un-install them (Cortana come to mind).

5) It appears that even though I have turned off "Live tiles" the tile continue to update from the net (again - it would have been nice to know since I am on a metered service).

If anyone knows how to work around these problems - I would greatly appreciate it other wise the only option that I know of is to revert back to Windows 7 or switch to a new OS.

Thank you
DHarvey

Preferred Solution: Poor Performance from Windows 10 - High CPU usage from SVCHOST

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.)

A: Poor Performance from Windows 10 - High CPU usage from SVCHOST

Something is not right with your installation. For comparison, with my idle system Task Manager shows 0% CPU use and 0% disk use for most of the time. Over a period of 1-2 mins it will jump to 50% for a few seconds on a number of occasions as it completes some task or other but then drops down again.

How did you install W10? Was it an upgrade via the Windows Update service or via an installation disk? Was it a clean install or did you choose to keep all your files and programs. I'm guessing it was the windows update route which has proved to be troublesome for some users.

As you are already thinking of a re-installation I would suggest you first try a clean install of W10. If you get it working correctly on your system it will be worth it.

Make sure you get the correct version/edition of W10 as an ISO download from the MS Tech Bench (this will make sure you get the latest build and avoid further updates) to match your original W7 version and proceed to install, skipping any activation steps as this will happen automatically once you are finished.

There are tutorials and many threads that run through this process for you on this site.

i have a problem but i bought a new Dell laptop with the following specifications
Dell inspiron 15R
core i7 3.1GHz Turbo, 6MB cache
16GB DDR3 RAM
Geforce Gt525 1GB Graphics

now the problem is that when the system is ideal it takes around 2.5 GB RAM usage
even there is no running applications
also i noticed that it's performance not that much.

is it normal?

A:Windows 7 high RAM usage and low performance

I think it's OK. For Win7 Ult it's normal to use about 25-30% of the RAM in idle. And it's about that percentage no matter how much RAM do You have installed .

After running anything in my browser that requires any CPU power ( Youtube, flashgames, Java, etc) svchost.exe uses a lot of my CPU ( 50% +) and stays like it even after closing whatever I was running, I always have to reboot. This has only happened in the last few weeks.
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
Browser: Firefox

Things I've tried:
Downloading processor explorer and checked what is hogging the CPU under svchost, it turned out to be critical services I cannot end. (Picture below)

Scanned with Malware Bytes & Microsoft SE ( Both updated, showed clean, multiple times)

Defragged my HDD, cleaned my registry, Windows is up to date expect for 1 Windows Update that will not install (When it configures after I reboot it fails and reverts changes, every time)

Hello from a newbie to Bleeping Computer.  I have found your site to be about the most helpful when doing various searches as I try to learn how to fix my own PC issues.  Now I've got one that doesn't seem to have an easy answer, at least not for my level of knowledge.
 
Dell Latitude e6400 64-bit
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1
4GB RAM
 
My CPU usage is often at 100%.  Checking my running processes, I noticed a new one at top of the list (when sorted by CPU time AND by Memory) svchost.  I realize svchost is a shell application for dlls and such...this one is a wrapper for netsvcs.  It shows from 1.3 to 1.5 GIGs of RAM in use.
 
I downloaded MiniToolBox and would be happy to post, what categories should I choose?

Howdy all! As the title suggests, I am having issues with windows update.

It started only two weeks ago, when I started up and my CPU monitor said something was running high. After trial and error, I found if I stopped the Windows Updater service, the system went back to normal.

Right now it's taking 13%-20% CPU and 2GB of memory when the updater is active.

I've tried all the suggested fixes from the other threads: reinstalled KB3102810, ran sfc scannow (log attached...but in RAR version, ZIP version was 110MB). I've tried running updates and restoring hidden updates. I can access Windows Update, and it displays one recommended and 2 optional updates to install, but when I try to install those updates, Windows Update just hangs at the downloading updates status (0% downloaded after 24 hours). I ran the SURT, it crashed my system after an hour...ran out of memory...

Suggestions?

I think this is a sata issue or a BIOS setting or perhaps just a Windows 8 bug...

Basically this happens:


I recently installed Windows 8 and finally some free time to get Steam installed. Installed Steam and am copying over my Steam directory (Disk 2, K) from my Win 7 to where I installed Steam this time (Disk 0, C). This is the same physical computer as I had Win 7 on prior.

What has changed since Win 7 is I thought since I was doing a fresh install, I would turn on AHCI in the BIOS and do it proper rather than IDE emulation or whatever it is called. But now crap like this happens. I googled a bit a week or 2 ago trying to figure it out and basically all that I could gather is either a hard drive is dying or it is an NCQ problem. Hard drive is not dying, I've ran plenty of diagnostics on it, and plus, it has less than 200 powered on hours at this point.

Now I turned off NCQ on ALL my drives just to see if the problem went away. It didn't, but I think it may have improved a little.

Device manager doesn't show any yellow "!" for anything.


Obviously this is completely unacceptable. Ideas on what to change to make it behave normally? Hopefully I'm missing something obvious, I've never used AHCI on a system before, mostly because when I had a system capable of it I was on XP and didn't want to load 3rd party drivers. Then for Vista and 7 I simply forgot before installing to switch it in the BIOS. I remembered this time for 8, ... Read more

I was gonna give you an updated AHCI driver from Intel but noticed you are running Core 2 Duos, so it probably wont be compatible. I am confused, does this occur in Win 7?

Hello all, I just noticed something and wanted to be sure or see if this is normal. When Windows Update checks for updates, svchost will jump up to ~500MB in usage, or after updates have been installed. It will stay there. If just checking for updates, but I don't install any, it will drop down to ~400MB, but no lower than that. Now, if I go into services and disable the Windows Update service, the memory usage drops from wherever it was at, down to ~22MB. What's with this, or is it just normal?

A:High Memory usage in svchost with Windows Update

Hello and welcome TGMP I am not real sure as to your concerns nor am I sure if the RAM usage is unusual - to me having that much on board if it doesn't cause any issues with what you are doing then I would just forget about it.
To be honest I have never checked this on any of my machines RAM usage using anything much at all.

Nice set up by the way

Hi there,
 
Having received fantastic help here in the past, I thought I would run something by these forums.
 
I have an ASUS X750J laptop running the latest version of Windows 8, but the performance is often very poor. One problem that repeatedly occurs is that Windows Media Player frequently crashes/hangs (curiously *after* playing videos); another repeated problem is that the Windows tile menu is amazingly slow. If I press the Windows button the tile menu appears, but if I start typing it takes aaaages for the search function to work.
 
Just now I ran task manager and it showed that my memory usage was at 50% (of 4GB). However, if I actually look at the processes they add up to way, way less than 2GB (although Internet Explorer is running at 300MB or something). The battery performance is set to high performance and it is plugged in.
 
I have run Malwarebytes and the Windows antivirus but neither has discovered anything.
 
Do I need to be worried or have I just got a crappy laptop?
 
Any advice would be gratefully received!

A:ASUS laptop - poor performance, memory usage seems off

Starting with Vista RAM usage doesn't matter anymore since it's handled in different way than in XP.
In simple terms Windows will cache as much RAM as it can to make it ready for immediate use.
 
What matters is CPU usage.
 
Are there any other issues beside Windows Media Player crashing?

So lately, I've noticed an immense amount of CPU usage when my PC is idle. This happened very suddenly and after some research I've found the two culpurets! PlugPlay and AudioEndPointBuilder. Since this is more of a Windows 7 problem than anything, I'm worried that if I try to stop either of those 2 proccesses something can really go wrong. I actualy tried the "stop process" option but both Process would keep running normally. I'm pretty sure that it's not a virus/malware problem. At this point I'm not sure as to what I can do more.

There is a serious issue with svchost.exe on my windows 7 computer. My HP Touchsmart 300-1025 has windows 7 64bit installed and svchost is slowing down the computer and using very high cpu and memory usage. It is not a virus or malware. I know the computer is not infected because one the computer has webroot and two if it was a virus or malware I would not be able to use the computer at all.

Hello fellow TSFers,

Recently, on my computer the svchost.exe process is taking up large amounts of the CPU (30-40%). I have read other sites saying to install a Windows automatic update (KB927891), but after downloading it I found that I already had this update. What else could be causing this issue? Thanks for reading, and please contribute all you know about this problem. Thanks.

P.S. I ran a virus scan and nothing was found.

You can check for things that start in addition to Windows.

Click start, run, type msconfig and press enter.

Look under Startup - uncheck EVERTHING!

Look under Services, check the box to hide MS Services, and again, uncheck EVERYTHING left.

Reboot.

Is the svchost running high cpu still after that?

A few days ago I noticed my CPU usage high and wouldn't fall under 50%. I found out it was something to do with svchost.exe so I killed it off and restarted my computer. It actually worked and my CPU usage was down to normal, but when I connect to the internet with my wireless adapter (I am on a desktop and the network is at my house) the buggy svchost.exe would start up again. I ran several virus scans, but nothing related was found.

I am running XP SP3.

Also I attached an image of my processes list from ProcessesExplorer. See where that svchost.exe is?

So this problem just happened out of the blue today. I was just browsing with my desktop and it just so happens that I noticed the jittery/laggy movement of my cursor occasionally. So I checked the Task Manager and noticed that svchost is putting my CPU usage at 50%~75% constantly.

The high CPU usage happens a few minutes after the computer was turned on. It seems that there's no "trigger" for this problem. It just suddenly appears.

During the previous days, I didn't had this problem. Last I used the computer was last night and it was not showing any signs of this kind of problem. I'm also the only person that uses this computer.

I've done system restore twice rolling back to Monday (10/10) and again to Sunday (10/9). The problem still persists. I've even done scans with RogueKiller and MBAM but nothing was detected.

The concerned services are:
AeLookpSvc

Hello,

One of the svchost.exe process is using higher memory than usual.

It's using 64,140K which is to much as when I end the process, the physical memory usage drops to around 900mb. It's at 1.34GB at the moment.

I am running Windows Vista.

Yesterday I had a virus but I removed it. I think it may be playing a role in this. I used MalwareBytes to fully scan the computer and it removed one threat which I dont think was related.

Thanks.

I wouldn't worry at all, unless your computer misbehaves.
CPU usage is at 3% and RAM usage at 31%.
Perfectly normal.

I have a quite new computer so i havent really looked on the taskmanager before. But today when i started the computer i thought it was running slowly so i checked it. Cpu Usage is constantly at around 40%.
there is 2 processes with svchost.exe, one taking around 25% and the other one taking around 12% of cpu usage.

I checked the services on one of the svchost:
Plug and Play
DCOM Server Process Launcher

And i saw in another thread that you could check the threads running under svchost with Process Explorer, the ones consuming cpu power on both the processes had Start Adress:
ntdll.dll!RtlUserThreadStart

My system is Windows Vista Ultimate SP1, AMD Phenom 9550 Quad-core 2.20GHz, 4GB RAM, 64 bit operating system.

A:svchost.exe high CPU usage

Unfortunately Vista runs a lot more background services and scheduled tasks than XP. Or put it this way, it keeps your cpu and hd busier than XP did. You can look at this site for ideas which services you may want to disable or set to manual to take off some of the system load.Vista Services Explainededit: btw it's a good idea to set a Restore Point to get back where you started if you shoulddisable something that should not be disabled. Proceed with care. On my system after a few of the obvious ones I started keeping a log. I'd try setting one service to Manual Stopped or Disabled, note it in the log, then run it for awhile. If things started seeming weird I had a note of exactly what I did so I could back it off. If you change multiple things at once it's easy to get lost.

I have this problem of High CPU usage mainly by Svchost.exe it will eventually shut it down. I ran all kinds of antivirus , malware found very little the last program was the ADWcleaner that found 71 infections at first  that seamed to help. But it still has high CPU usage sometimes close to 100% . So far it has not caused a total failure PC crash . The biggest problem is that when you click on to something it takes a while to come up with what you clicked onto and when you check yes the CPU is high . It is rarely below 70%. Any help would be greatly appreciated . Thanks Genel41

A:svchost.exe High CPU usage 98% of at least one CPU.

Get the PID of the problematic svchost.exe process (586 in your screenshot

Run Task Manger and right click on the matching svchost process and choose "Go to service"

Let us know which services are running under it.
If Windows Update shows up it's likely to be the culprit. You can confirm by stopping Windows Update Service via Start> Run> services.msc

Stop then set startup type to disabled and reboot to test.

Also worth a mention:

Grab copies if these and run them:

Svchost Process Analyzer

svchost viewer

The first one helps you check for anything out of the ordinary (malware running under svchost.exe) or unusual services configuration.

The second one just breaks down each svchost.exe process into it's component services.

Hi everyone,

I have some problems with my relatively new dell laptop (4 months old, and the problems are present for like 3 months), which include: Very high RAM usage: 80% when only Microsoft Edge is turned on.
Very high Disc usage: 100% almost at all times
Low performance in games (the laptop meets the req. for a game, still cant handle it; low fps, stuttering, freezing.
Can't handle videos sometimes: the sound works but video is frozen, or video Works and sound freezes.
Sometimes VERY S L O W: sometimes when i open an app, it turns on after a minute; when i type, the letters appear after a while.

I have already reset it to factory settings and wiped the HDD, didn't help. I have a lot of free space on HDD, no dust in the laptop, no physical damage, no viruses, no (useless) background proceses.

I have already had a call with a dell technician (he did some changes and driver updates), also didn't help.

Do you think a RAM upgrade would solve this? Or do i have to take it to service? Or anything else? Please help.

Thanks for answer in advance. (and sorry for my weak english)

I sincerely hope someone can help. I do not consider myself really computer illiterate, but this is where my understanding ends and I would truly value all help offered.

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro M70 of 2 yrs old and I am a definite advocate for Toshiba. However, my operating system is slow. Average day usage with Internet Explorer and Office 2007 is a painstaking process that takes too long. I have had conflicts with Trend Micro Internet Security 2008, which works perfectly.

But starting up the computer takes ages. CPU usage is usually high and System Idle Processes as well. I have reinstalled Windows XP from the Toshiba Boot DVD already 4 times with starting fresh and installing everything time and time again. Each time after getting everything up to speed again, the performance is disappointing.

I have extended RAM to 1,49 GB which made little difference from the original 1/3 of RAM. It seems that something is slowing down the computer, but this is not visable in the processes; other than quite a few svhost.exe processes that take little processing capacity nor CPU usage.

I have used Windows Gold Certified Uniblue Power Suite with a good registry cleaner. This helps a bit, but after a couple of days it seems to get only worse. I have an Intel Pentium M 1.73 GHz processor. Research online reveals that Trend Micro IS 2008 is quite good and demanding little capacity in comparison to competing security packages.

A:Re: Satellite Pro M70 - High CPU Usage - Low Performance

Hi

I doubt this could be a hardware issue? I mean a CPU usage could goes up if a certain service or applications would run in the OS background.

Usually the Antivirus applications are one kind of software which could cause such issue? I had a Norton System works installed on my notebook and this software needed a lot of hardware resources which slowed down the notebook?
Furthermore some Toshiba applications which are installed and running in the background could affect the performance. But such applications are needed in order to use all notebook features?

However, in msconfig you could disable it.
Start msconfig -> startup tab and disable some processes which are not necessary for you.

Furthermore you could use the CCleaner to clean the OS and the registry?

Hey guys, so I realize that this is a quite common problem people seem to be having, but I tried following a few threads and still gotten nowhere - the issue seems to be specific to my machine..
I'm having issues with my work-issued laptop (HP 8460p), it kinda freezes up at times and after a while I found out that the culprit seems to be svchost.dll which seems to awaken at times and swells up to 800-900 mb.

As I'm using a 32bit Win7 enterprise, with 4gb of ram (only 3 usable in 32 bit) + around 2 gb of virtual memory - the memory hog that is chrome which is turned on mostly all of the time = my computer starts REALLY lagging around 4-5 times a day, and I cant use it until I log in as admin and kill the rogue process.

Here's a screenshot of the dll in question (this one was taken a few moments after the swell so it's at 200 mb at the moment, but you can see the processes it's running.
Is there a way to see how much resources EACH of them is gobbling? I can't seem to find that.

Also, I have attached a svchost minidump which was taken at the peak of the memory swell, and also a list of processes on my machine (export from services.msc).

How do I fix this, and CAN I do it at all?

Recently the laptop began to slow down quite a bit. Looked at Start Manager and CPU usage was 100%.

I then looked at the Resource Monitor and saw that svchost.exe (netserv) fluctuates from 70% to 98% when nothing is running.

Rebooting lowers the CPU usage but after a while it goes up again.

I found the website "Full Malware Scan and Removal Guide" and followed all instructions and no good results.

Are you running 32bit or 64? in task manager if you right click the offending process there should be an option to create a memory dump. It will probably crash the computer but it will give us the app that is using that much memory on reboot.

Hi guys,

So I have had this problem for some time but have just put up with it, and well to be honest I'm bored and want to find a solution.

Each time I start a file transfer, svchost.exe (one of them) uses all available RAM on the system. I must note that this only happens when I transfer from my c:\ drive to my RAID0 array D:\.

I looked up the processes running under this svchost and got these results:


Code:
svchost.exe 552 AudioEndpointBuilder, hidserv,
HomeGroupListener, IPBusEnum, Netman,
PcaSvc, SysMain, UmRdpService, UxSms,
Wlansvc, wudfsvc
`
As you can see in these images, svchost is not apperantly using to much memory but I fail to see what else could be the root. I'm thinking a possible memory leak??

Any one got ideas as to what the problem could be?

Appreciation,
James

A:SVCHOST.exe high memory usage

You're right - that particular svchost is normal at 126 MB.

The problem I see is in the kernel memory nonpaged pool - a whopping 2514 MB (lower-left of Task Manager screen "Performance" tab). A kernel mode driver has a memory leak it appears to me.

Process Explorer may be able to help in conjunction with the Debugging Tools for Windows.

I have been experiencing some really annoying problem since I switched from XP to Seven on my Dell Vostro 1500 laptop. I had BSODs often, and also VERY high memory and cpu usage by svchost.exe.
I tried to install another windows 7 and I still have the same problems. I also still have the XP, and while it has gotten relatively slow, it works fine, without any of these problems.
I have attached a snapshot of Taskmanager.

Any thoughts?
Thanks

A:Very high memory (and sometimes CPU) usage by svchost.exe: up to 1 GB

Can't tell what's running under svchost from your screenshot. Add the PID column:

Then check the PID against the svchost instance with the same PID in the services tab.

I've attached a picture, this always happens when I turn on my computer for about 15-30 min. Process explorer says that wuauserv is using up the cpu, but this still happens whether or not I have updates that need to be installed. Is there anything wrong?

Hi all, sorry for jumping in almost straight away with a question.
I've been having some serious issues over the last couple of days, with my laptop performing very slowly and regularly crashing (No BSOD, just dies ...)
The computer is a Lenovo Thinkpad T400, Core 2 Duo P8600 2.4Ghz with 8gb of RAM, Running Windows 7 Ultimate.
I think I have narrowed the problem down to one of the many svchost.exe processes in task manager running around 50% CPU usage. Running Process Explorer suggests that this has two "process" under it, both called taskeng.exe, one with GoogleUpdate.exe under it and one with AdobeARM under it. I kill the process, but a few minutes later it starts right back up, again, around the 50% mark. This just seems rather odd to be and to my untrained mind, suggests malware or a virus.
I have run both Avast antivirus and Malwarebytes and neither of those have thrown up anything that relates to it, only a few potentially unwanted programs.
 
I do hope I haven't missed any important information out, but if I have, let me know and I will try my best to find and include it.
 
Cheers
Andrew

A:Possible infection, svchost.exe high CPU usage

Uninstall Adobe ARM. Kill the Google Update. exe. While looking in your lists of installed programs for Adobe ARM, look for Google Update assistant and uninstall if there.
 
Do this, too.
Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the
Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.
After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

Download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
Close all open programs and internet browsers.
Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click on Scan button.
When the scan has finished click on Clean button.
Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.

Hello, I have read some other posts on the problem that I believe I am having, and am looking for some advice.

My svchost is pushing 40k in memory right now so i took a look at the processes that are associated with it. They are as follows:

wudfsvc - windows driver foundation
WPDBusEnum - Portable device enumerator service
Wlansvc - WLAN autoconfig
WdlSystemHost - diagnostic system host
UxSms - Desktop Window MAnager Session MAnager
TrkWks - Distributed Link Tracking Client
TableInputService - Tablet PC Input Service
SysMain - Superfetch

Which of these is (are) the culprit(s)?

And, which may I disable?

Thank you for any help that can be provided.

hello everyone,

recently my pc has been having some minor 'lag' problems, i think best describes it.
Its relatively new with good specs so it should be able to handle the programs that i use on a regular basis easily.
I looked in the task manager and sorted processes by highest memory usage, and svchost.exe is at the top with almost 300,000K.
here is a screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/B4WiA.png
This seems out place, as i have asked a few friends with windows 7 if they have something similar, and they dont.
The services linked to this particular svchost.exe can be seen here:

first of all, is this actually a problem, if so, what would be the best way to reduce its memory usage.

Thanks for any help

Your problem is not memory. Not every performance issue comes down to memory usage. It could be the CPU it could be the HDD, it could be a number of things, however, you do not tell us what it is you are doing when it slows down.

And 300MB of memory usage is nothing.
