HI there,
I got lots of svchost in processes, I got like 7 running in my comp... found that out from ctr+del+enter then processes.
I got comodo firewall and I think that svchost is connecting to my internet.. right now it shows... like 0.5% in my comodo firewall and when it shows 100% from svchost my internet starts to go slow and sometimes crashes my computer...
So I have researched about this svchost.exe and it said that this is a XP program that manages dlls and stuff and xp cant run withought svchost.exe. long time ago my svchost started acting weird like windows said it had some problems and need to shut off... and a window appeared( where it says send error report). Yesterday only when comodo showed svchost as 100% comodo showed 68 outbound access and it crashed my firewall :)
I dont know whats going on..........

Uninstall Comodo and activate windows firewall. Reboot. If the computer runs well reinstall Comodo, if you wish. Make sure that you don't have two firewalls running at the same time.

Microsoft's is good enough for me. We want to remove Comodo to pinpoint the trouble. Latter you can install it again if you wish.
