My cpu is being eating up svchost.exe using 99%

Any ideas on what I should do?

Thanks

Quite probable it's Windows Automatic Update. Try disabling it and see if that fixes the problem. You will have to reboot after disabling.

Right click on My Computer and select Properties.
Click on the Automatic Update tab.
Select Turn off automatic update.
Save and exit.
Reboot.

Here is a link for more info: windows update svchost 100 cpu
