  1. Ok, so I had a problem where svchost was hogging 50-70% of my cpu every 3-6 seconds. (Problem stated here: http://www.testmy.net/t-21063). Well after a bunch of stoping and restarting services associated with the svchost that was going crazy i believe i've stumbled on the culprit Dhcp service. When i stop it the cycles go from 50-70 to 3-7% every 5 or so seconds. The problem now, I know whats doing it but how do i fix this/what is wrong with Dhcp!?
  2. So, I did a bunch of virus scans they all came back negative so I'm pretty sure its not a virus. However I think it might be a memory leak. The page size of Svchost appears to continually grow upwards of 500K =C. The memory count is never less than 36K, its at least the 3rd highest on my list if I'm running a game. However another possibility is that it might be a problem with my memory as within a few hours SvcHost (no other programs though) easily exceeds 5 million page faults. Thinking about it I might just be spending way to much time doing OS + mem operations. How would I narrow it down and test each of these individually to tell which one is the true cause?
  3. OK, So the problem is for some reason my SVChost.exe process (PID 1580) is spiking CPU consumption to about 30-60% every 3-6 seconds. This might not seem like a problem but scanning my computer now takes significantly longer and many games incur lag spikes every 3-6 seconds (very annoying). I've seen a few other people with the error but have yet to find a solution thats works. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me System Info. OS: XP SP2 Professional 32 bit CPU: AMD 64 3800+ GCPU: Nvidia 6800GT 256 Mb RAM: 1.5GB Services run by PID 1580 include: AudioSrv, Browser, CryptSvc, Dhcp, dmserver, ERSvc, EventSystem, FastUserSwitchingComp., HidServ, lanmanserver, lanmanworkstation, Netman, Nla, NwSapAgent,RasMan, Schedule, seclogon, SENS, SharedAccess, ShellHWDetection, srservice, TapiSrv, TrkWks, W32Time, winmgmt, wscsvc, wuauserv, WZCSVC It only recently started acting this way, not sure what changed in that time but nothing major. Thanks again!
