My computer's been lagging a lot recently. I found out that in device manager, svchost.exe had 5 or so processes running. One of the proccesses was using 100% CPu Usage. I varies between 40-100% now (usually on the higher side).
\I know that svchost.exe is a system file but why is it eating up my RAm like that, even when I'm not doing anything?

Please help..
