Hello.. I have this problem with my Laptop Acer Aspire 4745G
I reinstalled the W7 and updated the OS to sP1 anf installed some apps like PsCS6 and Office2013..
Suddenly i noticed that my PC is running slow on idle and even without any apps open..
I opened taskmngr to monitor d activities in it and found out that the svchost. Exes are eating up my ram.. I checked d services and i found that the major monster is under the group of netsvcs (windows update, themes, etc) and the other svchost is under PID 1432 (wudfsvc, wlan svc, uxsms (dwm) sys main, etc)

I tried disabling the windows update and it solved the problem to the other svc host... But i dnt really want to disable my windows update for i want to be secured from threats and be updated... Is there any fix you can recommend? Or please link me if there is d same issue that is solved already...

Sorry i am new in this forum.. Thanks...

Re-enable Windows Update and be patient. Once all updates have been installed it will settle down and stop slowing things down.


After an install or reinstall, I open Control Panel and apply updates via Windows Updates through there rather than wait for it to happen automatically. Usually takes several hours to get all of them (185+ I believe on top of SP1).
