Windows update problem (svchost.exe)
 
Who
has problems updating Windows XP?
I tried doing a fresh install
of Win XP SP3 on a PC a few times (reformat HDD each time :s22:).
Every time the same problem repeats: when Windows update runs, no
updates will be found and svchost.exe will load one thread of the CPU
to the max :( .
If install Internet Explorer 8, the problem
stops only temporarily - Windows update works but after one or two
auto searches, downloads and installs of updates, the problem
repeats.
recently my previous hard disk failed and i replaced it with a new one
and i installed windows 2000 pro service pack 4,
i retrived my
data from the faulty drive and was doing good till i start connecting
to the net;
now i get the error svchost.exe the referenced memory
could not be accessed.
i searched and seen many articles
explaining what the cause might be , some suggest a virus or worm, />others may be installing the microsoft security patch or downloading
the norton tools for fixing the blaster
or welch worm might fix
the problem, the microsoft web site suggests editing the registry
might solve the problem.

Wow, Im really REALLY out of the flash subject this time, and I hope
non of you gets offended due to this. But Im really panic and I dont
feel to ask microsoft...
My cpu usage is constatly above 40%
without having anything running than the op, so you can imagine the
suffering workin with flashMx,firewoksMx,photoshop7 and fruityloops at
the same time. A took a look at the process-viewer-thingy, and I found
that a svchost.exe is eating pretty much of the cpu, and I wonder if
anyone knows what this is for, and if you can have a look to see how
if you have that running... thank you, and I dont expect ANYONE to
answer this, but if you do, thanks a million.

recently a process named "generic host process for win32 services"
with filename svchost.exe keeps popping up in my firewall asking
permission to reach a number of ips. it is not one or two but dozen
times in a few seconds.
is it safe to let it go thru my firewall
and what app would invoke this thing?
I have checked for viruses
and adwares but turned out nothing and other apps would use their real
firenames in asking permission of my firewall.

ok here's my problem...my computer has been lagging like crazy so
opened up task manager to see what was taking up my memory and cpu...i
didn't see anything but then i noticed i had like 6 svchost.exe
processes running...i looked it up and microsoft stated that svchost
can run multiple times at once...the problem is one of them is taking
up like 50,000 KB more memory than any of the others and this
particular is also taking up a crapload of my cpu off and on as
well...is there anything i can do to stop this?

This has been going on for months now, and I can take it anymore. Ive
re-installed it now, and it is still happening! />http://i.imgur.com/xFYK14M.jpg

annoying problem!?
