To see what your machine is up to.
Hold down the crtl, alt keys, then hit delete.

This will brings up the task manager.
Click on processes.

Look for something using a lot of CPU.

these are, your windows operating system in action.
They are processes that run in the background that control the different
funtions of your system.
Look here :http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314056
for a description of what your svchost.exe is for.

What I was looking for is if any of these have a constantly high CPU %

Download Process Explorer: http://technet.micro...s/bb896653.aspx
Unzip ProcessExplorer.zip, and double click on procexp.exe to run the program.
Go File>Save As, and save the report as Procexp.txt.
Attach the file to your next reply.

Your CPU usage is normal.
System Idle Process stands at 92%, which means only 8% is in use.

Please, post some computer info:
- processor type, amount of RAM (hold Windows logo key, hit Pause/Break key)
- hard drive size/free space (open "My Computer", right click on hard drive letter, click "Properties")
- security programs in use (antivirus, firewall)

svchost are wrappers...they are small programs that run other several other services ...
Some of the common service wrappers, which can be seen in the Task Manager:

* Services.exe : Services Control Manager for system services.
* Lsass.exe : Local Security Authority SubSystem for security services.
* Svchost.exe : Service Host for loading dynamic-link libraries (DLL) as a services
* Dllhost.exe : DCOM DLL Host Process (Aka. COM Surrogate)supports DLL based COM objects. (Replaces Mtx.exe)
* Svrany.exe : Applications as Services Utility. Related Install an application as a Windows service.
there ore other too...

they are necessary for your system to run...
