  1. My pc is running on windows 7 and is having an issue where the svchost.exe escalates it's memory usage and maxes out my cpu until it causes the computer to crash. I do not know what to do.

    I'm being forced to actively end any svchost.exe that runs over 100,000 memory usage in order to keep the PC running.
