Problem With A Growing Svchost Process (not The Usual One)

For example, I have read that it was Automatic Updates causing the problem, HP Printers, JavaTime(?). permalinkembedsavegive gold[–]inaddrarpa. 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago(0 children)When was the last time you ran windows update?

If you have this svchost.exe memory leak bug after about 1 minute you will see that the amount of memory usage svchost.exe uses will keep increasing until CPU becomes 99 or Wish I had come across this post before rebuilding my system :o( tomas says November 4, 2008 at 10:29 am hi!I'm having a problem with my comp too.The svchost is rising Look for "KB927891" and uninstall it. I recently installed an HP printer (c4390) and ever since i got this annoying svchost.exe exploding cpu.

svchost.exe doesn't affect CPU usage at all, it just starts at about 4,000 KB mem usage when i start my computer and will constantly rise while it is left on. ed says August 6, 2008 at 9:42 pm The suggested fix didn't work ( I found the same elsewhere ) on my ibm thinkpad a22m, but I read about windows live Lastly, it might be advisable to disable the two aforementioned services before manually installing these updates, then re-enable them afterwards. it appeared up again for 30 secs… is that supposed to happen..?

it works !!! dunno Erick says June 28, 2007 at 3:40 am Thank you, Clear and concise. and did see all that stuff, Now I will try your segestions and will give you back the info.

Josh B says December 29, 2008 at 4:01 pm lol, so nevermind. I tryed each fix that was valid for me but none of them worked except #27 ..

As soon as I did the recommendation…everything was great. http://macland.net/problem-with/problem-with-cs-1-6.php I used to blame it on wuauclt.exe, but your solution fixed it immediately. I found that the only way I could stop it is to go into Task Manager and end its process and also run msconfig and disable it from startup. Yesterday i loaded software for my HP printer and svchost.exe was at 99% cpu ever since.

You are awesome! That may have fixed the solution as well. I couldn't even get the Task Manager to come up without waiting for 15 minutes.

I finally took the bull by the nose and called HP since svchost.exe was caused by them.

I guess I'll go down the hotfix route. :D permalinkembedsavegive gold[–]oynazEternal newbie 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago(0 children)I saw this and a similar problem over the summer. Urgent plz, i'm desesperated. le says December 16, 2007 at 9:20 am did not work Liza says December 18, 2007 at 8:00 am Our laptop just started doing this about a week ago.

Sorry again, corrected myself. Thanks every one JohnC says January 14, 2009 at 1:33 pm There are many different variables that can cause this, however something that has worked on different systems I have worked any I have not updated to sp3 yet. have a peek at these guys Gediminas says October 7, 2007 at 5:09 am Very usefull information.

Does that mean it is an inherent Microsoft Windows problem? Likely a leak somewhere but given the services listed above, do any stand out as being a potential culprit? Peter says June 12, 2007 at 11:41 pm It doesnt seem to work for me, i have 2 xp pro comps networked, they seem fine until i both are booted and Chad Patterson says December 26, 2007 at 1:56 pm Hi All,In reference to post #33, I also just installed HP network printer software and was having this same issue.

However, with a few tweaks to reset procedures, both security and client satisfaction can be achieved. Thanks, Melanie Alden says June 5, 2007 at 4:12 am I see it all the time… I usually just disable the msconfig startup options and I find that helps some. Model 7410.
