"ServiceHost.exe" and not "svchost.exe"? The latter is normal for XP, the former is not.
My computer has gotten extremely slow in the last couple of weeks. It is slow loading the desktop, seems to have something working in the background, (yet no processes are running). Also very slow on the internet, (some sites), home page, and a few others.
I am running a PIII-500, 256 mem. two HD's, 20 and 13. 56 k modem. Win Xp Pro. The system was working fine up to about two weeks ago, and for some reason got very slow. I have ZA, (free version), AVG, run Microsofts Antispyware, Spybot, and Adaware weekly. In trying to go throught the process of elimination, I find that I have five ServiceHost.exe listed under processes running, for a total of 37,144 memory usage. Doesn't make a lot of sense to me, but, could that amount of usage be part of my problem?
