svchost, possible virus?
When the laptop boots, seems like the hard drive is working like forever!!! So I check it out in Task Manager to see what's hanging. Sure enough, the stupid svchost is hogging 99% of the CPU cycle. I end it, then everything loads right up!!!!! Things get fast again. What the hell is this svchost anyways? Doesn't seem like it does any good, just give headaches, slowing down the system, causing applications to hang, etc.
Any of you guys have this kind of problem too? I did a fresh install of Windows awhile back too, so the laptop's pretty clean. Maybe it's from all the crap I downloaded that somehow triggers the svchost, don't know.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
