svchost.exe is taking most of my CPU usage
Hi, this is Windows XP SP3 based HP Laptop. Since last couple of days I am noticing my system is getting slower and slower day by day. After doing some troubleshoot I found that a process svchost.exe is eating up a huge memory and resources alone. Once I killed it the system became normal. So it was svchost.exe slowing down my PC.
Now the problem is it keeps appearing again and again and slowing down the system. I need to kill it more than 10 times a day to keep my system normal. Can anyone please tell me what is it related to and how can I get rid of the same permanently? Many Thanks.
